Dear Pickens County families:

My name is Travis Thomas, and I am honored to have both the privilege and the responsibility of serving as the Superintendent of the Pickens County School District! I hope you are able to enjoy these last few days of summer and are anxiously awaiting the start of a new school year. To me, this time of year always brings anticipation and joy, and we have been working diligently to make sure our facilities are ready for our students and our teachers.

In the Pickens County School District, as part of our beliefs, we believe that collaboration between students, schools, families, and community is critical not only to student success but also to our success as a district. On behalf of our school district and our Board of Education, I look forward to this partnership!

As I close, it is my vision for our school district that we lead the counties in North Georgia academically, athletically, in our performances with our fine arts and activities, and organizationally. It is also my vision that all of our graduates from Pickens High School start their journey after graduation with a plan to be either enrolled, enlisted or employed. Our school district believes in continuous improvement. If we can each commit to getting better every day, of every week, of every month, of this coming year, we will get closer to hitting these aspirations!

I am looking forward to having an excellent year together! Stay fierce and go be great!
Dr. Travis Thomas
