Mrs. Megan Hoyt, Principal

I was born and raised in the York community and attended schools within the district from Kindergarten through graduation. Because of my incredible experiences here, I feel honored to have the profound opportunity to serve our students, staff, and community. Each day, I look forward to partnering with such a strong and dedicated staff to provide our students with high-quality and individualized learning experiences that will equip them for success and prepare them to make a positive impact in the future.  I am a graduate of both Winthrop University and the University of South Carolina, where I received my Master of Education degree in Educational Leadership. I previously held the role of art teacher at both Hunter Street and Jefferson Elementary schools, and I also served as the Assistant Principal at Hunter Street Elementary and Jefferson Elementary. I enjoy living in the country quiet of Hickory Grove, and I love spending time with my husband, two children, and our dogs

Mrs. Heather Montgomery, Assistant Principal

It is an honor and privilege to be the assistant principal of Cotton Belt Elementary School. I began my career in education in 2000 after graduating from Winthrop University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Special Education. As a York native, I wanted to give back to my community and educational system that helped shape me. I taught for 14 years at Hickory Grove-Sharon Elementary in various grade levels ranging from second, fourth and sixth as well as special education.  While teaching, I earned a Master’s degree from Columbia College in Divergent Learning and another Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Arkansas State University. I became the assistant principal at Jefferson Elementary in 2014, before moving to Cotton Belt in 2021.


My husband, Kevin and I live in McConnells with our youngest son Larson.  Our other son, Jackson, attends Western Carolina University and lives in Cullowhee, North Carolina.   I enjoy watching baseball, spending time with my family, and traveling.
