The School District of Pickens County Board of Trustees has begun its search for the district’s next superintendent.
Jim Shelton, chairman of the board’s employee/public relations committee, is directing the search process.
“Our expectation is to choose a candidate who will make Pickens the premier school district of South Carolina. The resources are all in place: a stable student population; a motivated, experienced team of educators; and modern facilities," Shelton said. "Much will be expected of our next superintendent, but we're confident that we can find the right person who will meet the challenge and achieve our vision."
A description of the required qualities, education, training, and experience is published under Human Resources/Vacancies on the district website.
Individuals interested in applying are asked to send a cover letter, resume, certificate number, and references to Dr. Stephanie Lackey, executive director of human resources, 1348 Griffin Mill Road, Easley, SC 29640.
Applications are being accepted through January 31.
The new superintendent will succeed Dr. Henry Hunt who is retiring at the end of June. Hunt has been superintendent since June 2009.
