During their meeting Tuesday, the Anderson School District One Board of Trustees named Dr. Kelly Pew as Assistant Superintendent for Administration and Amy Bagwell principal at West Pelzer Elementary.
Dr. Pew is a former Wren High Administrator and has served as Superintendent for the School District of Pickens County and more recently the Rock Hill Schools Superintendent since 2014.
In a statement presented to Rock Hill board members, faculty and staff Tuesday night Pew said: “I am excited to have the opportunity to return to the district from which I graduated and began my administrative career,” Pew said. “I will have the opportunity to work with and among many people for whom I hold much respect.”
Pew said: “This position will also allow me to move closer to my parents and mother-in-law, enabling me to provide them the support and care I feel is important at this time in our lives. I appreciate your support during my time in Rock Hill and for the decision that I have made for my family. The last four years have been wonderful for my husband and for me, and we will always be grateful to the time we have spent in Rock Hill.”
