The ink on the Rock Hill School Board’s decision to hire Kelly Pew is barely dry, but already Pew has signed a new, four-year contract with the district.

Pew, now the former superintendent of Pickens County, S.C. Schools, resigned Thursday. She was in Rock Hill Friday meeting with students, teachers and administrators before signing her contract with the district’s Board of Trustees.

“It was a pretty quick week,” Pew said in a late Friday afternoon interview with WRHI. Pickens County Schools named its successor as well Thursday.

Pew’s contract in Rock Hill is for four years and calls for a yearly salary of $180,000.

“There has been an outpouring of support from Rock Hill,” Pew said. “When you’re making a transition…it’s so nice to have so many well-wishes.”

She will start in her new role March 5, replacing interim superintendent John Taylor.
