The School District of Pickens County has named a new superintendent.

Kelly Pew will replace Henry Hunt as the school district's leader. Hunt is retiring at the end of June.

Pew, who started her career as a teacher at Chapman High School in 1991, has been working as the district's superintendent of instruction services since May 2011. Prior to that, Pew worked as the district's superintendent of human resources for three years.

"Both my mother and grandmother are Easley High School graduates," Pew said. "So, I have a true connection to Pickens County."

Pew graduated from Clemson University in 1991. She also earned a master's degree from Furman University in 1991 and a Ph.D. from Clemson in 2002.

Pew also has served as an adjunct professor at Southern Wesleyan University since 2003, teaching graduate courses in curriculum, instruction and school leadership. She also teaches in the master of education program at Anderson University.

"Over the next few months, I will be working with board members to develop specific goals for the district for the 2012-2013 school year," Pew said.

Pew said she is passionate about the students in the district, and that each employee is important to the goals of the district.

The board vote for Pew's hiring was unanimous, district officials said.
