Sarah McIntosh is director of student services

Dr. Walker Todd will be the new assistant superintendent of finance and operations and Sarah McIntosh will be the new director of student services for the Pierce County Board of Education.

The appointments came following an 18 minute closed session to discuss personnel last Tuesday morning. The school board work session was changed from Thursday to Tuesday due to a scheduling conflict.

Dr. Todd has been the principal at Midway Elementary since the school opened in 2010. His elevation to the central office leaves a vacancy in the principal’s position there. The board voted to open the job for rehire. (See related story.)

Prior to serving as principal at MES, Dr. Todd had been an assistant principal at Blackshear Elementary for five years. He taught science and coached at his alma mater and also taught one year at the middle school. He graduated from PCHS in 1992.

He and his wife, Jill, have two daughters, Logan Todd and Leigha Todd, and three sons, Griffin O’Quinn, Patrick O’Quinn and Tucker O’Quinn. The family attends First Baptist Church.

Dr. Todd succeeds LeVance Gay who resigned earlier last month for family reasons.

McIntosh succeeds William Hall who resigned in October. His last official day was Nov. 30.

McIntosh is also a graduate of Pierce County High School and returned home to teach at her alma mater.

She has taught Special Education for the past 18 years, all of them at PCHS. For the past several years she has been the PCHS Special Education Lead Teacher and Individualized Education Program (IEP) Coordinator.

She and her husband, Dathan, have two children, Mason and Russ.

In other personnel decisions at last week’s board meeting, the school board voted to hire IJ Fullard as community wrestling coach.
