Hello, my name is Brian Piercy. I serve on the McDowell County Board of Education. I have one son who is 25 and married. I am a volunteer firefighter and have been in the service for 32 years. I am a career firefighter and I work for Woodlawn/Sevier Volunteer Fire Department. I was first elected to the Board of Education in 2004 as the Old Fort representative. I served until 2010 when I moved out of the Old Fort School District. I was elected back to the Board in 2014 as the PG School representative and re-elected in 2018. I also serve on the North Carolina School Board Association Board of Directors from 2015-2019. I am currently the President of the Western North Carolina Firefighters Association. I have an A.S. Degree in Fire Science, a B.S. Degree in Fire Administration and I am currently working on my Master’s degree in Business Administration/Human Resource Management. I am excited about the direction that McDowell County Schools are going and hope that we can continue to grow our children.
