Oconee names two new principals
The principal of Abbeville High School will be the next principal of Walhalla High School. The Oconee School District announced today the hiring of Kenneth “Steve” Garrett July 1—succeeding Josh Young who resigned to take a principal’s job in Pickens County. Garrett has 20 years experience as a teacher and administrator. At the same time an assistant principal at Walhalla, Robert Norizsan Jr., is leaving the elementary school to be the next principal at Tamassee-Salem Elementary. The Garrett and the Norizsan hirings were approved during a special meeting today of the Oconee school trustees.
