The Pickerington Board of Education on April 28 voted to hire Dr. Valerie M. Browning as the next superintendent.
Browning, current superintendent of the King's Local School Distirct in Warren County, received a five-year contract. She will receive an annual base salary of $143,300 and will receive an additional $12,000 per year in annuities if she meets certain terms of her contract.
Browning will take over as superintendent Aug. 1, replacing Rob Walker, who's been superintendent for the past two school years. Walker announced in February that he will retire this summer to focus on his family and health.
