School board members donate their
time and efforts to ensure that our students
receive a first-class education and
an opportunity for future success in life.
School Board Week is a chance for the
community to thank these individuals for
their commitment to education and to
the students of Pickett County.
On behalf of Pickett County Schools,
we would like to say, "Thank You" to our
board members, from left to right, Jerry
Mitchell, Terrell Garner, Jimmy Storie
and John Reagan. We appreciate all you
do for our children. Board members are
