In a unanimous vote on Monday, the Banks County Board of Education named Donna Reed as interim school superintendent for the Banks County School System.
Reed, the assistant superintendent for the past 10 years, will assume responsibilities from Chris Erwin, who is retiring, beginning Dec. 1.
Reed served as a teacher, counselor and administrator in both Franklin and Banks counties prior to being named assistant superintendent in 2003. She is an alumnus of Clemson University where she received her undergraduate, masters and specialist degrees in education. Reed was named an ACC Basketball Women’s Legend in 2010 and is also a member of the Anderson College and Clemson Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame.
“I’m very excited about this opportunity and am grateful the board has the confidence in me to lead this school system,” Reed said. “I have very big shoes to fill, but I look forward to the challenge of continuing to ensure the safety and success of our students and faculty in a different capacity.”
Reed is married to Steve Reed. The couple has two grown children and five grandchildren.
