Paula Anderson and Lee Glover are the newest principals in the Georgetown County School District. On Tuesday night the School Board approved Anderson as the next principal at Andrews High School and Glover as the next principal at Carvers Bay Middle School.
Anderson is a graduate of Pleasant Hill High School and holds a bachelor’s degree in elementary education, a master’s degree in integrated studies, and a doctorate degree in educational leadership. For the past two years, Anderson has been an assistant principal and curriculum administrator at Andrews High.
In March, a group of Andrews residents urged the School Board to hire Anderson to replace longtime Principal Michelle Greene, who is retiring. Ernie Cooper Sr., an elder at an Andrews church, called Anderson “a role model who is respected throughout Andrews by the parents, students and community.”
Glover is a graduate of Georgetown High School and has worked for the Georgetown County School District for 18 years, including at Georgetown Middle School. He has a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and a master’s degree in elementary administration. He has been the assistant principal at Carver Bay Middle for nine years.
The School Board also approved Craig Stone as the new director of the Georgetown County Career Center, and Brian Clark as the district’s director of special projects. Stone has been assistant principal at Carvers Bay High School for 11 years. Clark spent the last two years as the director of the Career Center.
“We had an excellent group of candidates,” Superintendent of Schools Randy Dozier said. “I wish I could have promoted or changed positions for everybody.”
The district is still looking to fill about six assistant principal jobs due to changes in jobs or retirements, Dozier added.
Jon Tester, the district’s executive director of human resources, said there are currently 69 teaching vacancies in the district: 33 at elementary schools, 12 at middle schools and 24 at high schools.
