Kershaw County School District Superintendent Harrison Goodwin announces Rose Timmerberg Montgomery as the permanent principal of Camden High School. She has served as the interim principal since December. “Rose Montgomery’s return to Camden High isn’t just a homecoming, it’s a historic opportunity. As the first alumna in over 50 years to step into the principal’s role, she embodies the spirit of the Bulldogs – legacy and strength. Her journey from student to teacher, to administrator, has gifted her with a unique understanding of the school’s needs and aspirations. We are thrilled to have Rose at the helm, guiding Camden High’s future,” says Goodwin.

With more than 20 years of education experience, Montgomery previously served as  assistant director of Woolard Technology Center and assistant principal at North Central High School. She is a 1995 Camden High School graduate, and returned to teach French at Camden from 2001-2009, where she served as a department head for five years. She served as a part of the administration team as an administrative assistant from 2006-2009. In 2007, she was named the school’s teacher of the year. Montgomery holds a bachelor’s degree in French from the University of South Carolina and master’s degree in Secondary Administration from the University of South Carolina. She is certified as a teacher, secondary principal, and secondary supervisor.
