Shooting the Breeze with Lee Shiver, former Pickens schools superintendent

Renegade educator talks multiple firings, questioning authority and throwing ice at squirrels


    When he was a former Pickens school superintendent Lee Shiver was never without suit and tie. On the day of this interview, he had a pony-tail and was wearing a Hawaiian shirt, shorts, baseball cap, Converse tennis shoes with no socks, and a rubber clown nose. 

     Since retiring as an educator, Lee Shiver has lived in Pickens County for about a year, keeping a low profile. Previously he served as superintendent of schools here from 1999 through 2005 and was also involved in numerous civic and church groups.
