In the summer of 2012 Southern Elementary Principal Joe Buerkley was hired by the Pendleton County School System to fill an administrative position in its central office. Then, Southern Elementary Assistant Principal Laura Pugh was hired as Southern’s new principal. Mrs. Pugh was once a student at Southern Elementary. She taught the first and second grades at Southern, simultaneously, for one year.
