Former CCSD Trustee, Toya Hampton, elected as staff attorney

April 30, 2024

Charleston County School District (CCSD) welcomed Toya Hampton as staff attorney. Hampton is a former member of the CCSD Board of Trustees and has served as CCSD’s Director of Achieve Charleston since March 2023.

Hampton came to Charleston from Seattle in 1995 by way of Americorps National Civilian Community Corps (Americorps NCCC). Americorps NCCC, a domestic service program for 18–24-year-olds similar to the Peace Corps, hired her as a team leader after college and before she attended law school.

In addition to her time spent in Americorps, Hampton has been part of the Liberty Fellowship, a South Carolina statewide leadership and service network, since 2006.
However, it’s Hampton’s service on the Charleston County School Board as a Trustee from 2006 to 2012 that has garnered her significant attention.

During her six years on the board including serving as chair in 2009, Hampton dedicated her efforts to improving the public school system and lent her support for the construction of numerous new school buildings.

An accomplished lawyer, Hampton has practiced in the state of South Carolina for 23 years.
