Terrence Scriven


FLORENCE, S.C. -- Terrence Scriven said today he has been hired as the district athletic director with Cherokee County Schools. So, he will leave his post of athletic director at Florence's Wilson High School, effective July 19.

At his new job, Scriven will oversee the athletic programs and facilities affiliated with two high schools and three middle schools.

“It wasn’t really any major factor for me to apply for the job. It was a situation that I wasn’t expecting, but a position came open,” Scriven said. “I had some familiarity with it, so I put in for it and was able to be offered, and I accepted the position.”

Scriven was approved for the position Monday night. He added he doesn’t know who will replace him was Wilson's athletic director, a position he had held since May 1, 2017.

“Wilson was a great place," Scriven said, "I really enjoyed my time there, but this was an opportunity to oversee a district athletic program.”

While Scriven prepares for his next job, he reflected upon his time at Wilson.

“It meant a lot," he said. "I’ll be honest to tell you after I left my previous position (athletic director at Sumter), I came to Wilson and Florence One Schools wanting to create another opportunity. I can truly say I’m leaving Wilson High School today with a new family. They’ve been great.

“The place is full of potential from the head administration and board at the district office to the school to the teachers and faculty and maintenance. They’ve been beyond friendly and supportive, and they’re going to continue to thrive in that place. I especially wanted to thank as being instrumental to my time here the following: (Former F1S superintendent) Randy Bridges, (current F1S superintendent) Richard O’Malley, (Wilson principal) Eric Robinson and (middle and secondary eduction director) Kelvin Wymbs.”
