At its meeting Tuesday night, the Kershaw County Board of School Trustees voted to select Windsor Elementary (Richland School District 2) Assistant Principal Sherrill Creel to be the new principal for Blaney Elementary (BES) starting July 1. Creel is replacing Ed Yount who is leaving for a similar position in the Upstate.

“Ms. Creel has a good handle on all the pieces of an elementary school curriculum and understands how to use data at an expert level,” Kershaw County School District (KCSD) Superintendent Frank Morgan said in a press release. “She understands how to balance the need to sustain a warm and family-like school atmosphere with the need to make the kind of tough decisions required of a principal.”

Creel has been assistant principal at Windsor Elementary since 2011. Prior to that, she served in a similar role at Lonnie B. Nelson Elementary School for three years. She began her teaching career at North Springs Elementary where she was once selected as the school’s teacher of the year.

She has experience implementing a character education program, serving as a lead teacher for summer school, leading the implementation of teacher and student data notebooks and coordinating the alignment of the International Baccalaureate Programme with district standards.

Creel has a master of educational leadership degree from Capella University and a bachelor of science degree.
