“Our greatest national resource is the minds of our children.”
There is no doubt the Dr. Elgin Mayfield believes this quote. A Peach County native, Dr. Mayfield comes to Bonaire Primary School from a six year tenure as principal of Langston Road Elementary School, which he opened in 2014. Prior to opening Langston Road Elementary, Dr. Mayfield served as principal for seven years at Perry Primary School. Before becoming a principal Dr. Mayfield was the Assistant Principal of Instruction at Parkwood Elementary. As a teacher, Dr. Mayfield was the Director of Bands for Pelham City Schools, Bert Rumble Middle, and most notably, Northside High School in Warner Robins.
“It is my honor to have served in so many capacities for the Houston County School System. It is a privilege to work with many wonderful families, teachers, and of course students. I strive every day to do the best that I can do for each person I come in contact with.”
Dr. Mayfield earned his Doctorate in Education from Valdosta State University in 2011, his Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Columbus State in 2004, and his Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from Valdosta State in 1995. His wife, Pamela, is a Speech Pathologist for the Peach County School System, and he has two beautiful daughters, Abigail and Caroline.
