     New superintendent pledges to remove “junk” - At a swearing-in ceremony Friday, the new superintendent of schools, Dr. Carlton Wilson said he is proud to be taking the reins of one of the best school systems in the state.

He told those assembled his goal is to see Pickens recognized as a top 10 school system and when that happens, work for the number one spot. Wilson said he would strive to take away the “junk” that

bogs down classroom teaching. “Teachers need to be able to teach and principals to control their schools,” Wilson said.

Wilson was sworn-in as superintendent by Magistrate Judge Allen Wigington. Wilson’s wife Cindy held the Bible for the ceremony.
