Peggy Andrews is a native of Cherokee County but has resided in Pickens County for the past forty-four years. She and her husband Jerry live in Tate. They have one son, Mickey, and two grandchildren--Jake, a freshman at Kennesaw State University, and Nate, a student at Harmony Elementary.
Ms. Andrews graduated from Cherokee High School in Canton, Georgia, earned an Associate of Arts degree from Reinhardt College in Waleska, Georgia; a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education from Brenau University in Gainesville, Georgia; a Masters degree in Instructional Technology from the University of Georgia; and a Masters degree in Educational Administration also from the University of Georgia. She is a retired educator of thirty-six years from the Pickens County School system. During her tenure, she held positions of teacher, media specialist, and assistant principal, principal, and curriculum director.
“Our school system should be a community where people offer strength and support to each other. It should be a community that offers personal growth to everyone, a good place to learn, to work, to be. Board members are not important, but their work is. There is no job more important. Every decision we make has a direct impact on our children and must be considered very carefully. Like most who want to be on a school board, I sought this office because I wanted to make a difference, and I know that some of the changes we fight for and will continue to fight for will help children long after we are gone.” (Peggy Andrews)
