School Board Appreciation Week

School Board Appreciation WeekPickett County Schools would like to say “Thank You” to our school board members in Pickett County. School Board Members are (pictured at left) Jimmy Storie, Terrell Garner, John Reagan and Jerry Mitchell. Each and every one of them devote their time and efforts to ensure that our students receive a first-class education and opportunity for future success. Public education is everyone’s business, and it holds the key to success in every community. We are very fortunate in Pickett County to have a board that wants to do what is best for our students.
Please take the time and make the effort to thank our board members for all they do.
