The announcement was made Monday morning that veteran football coach Dewayne Kellum has returned to lead the Southside High School football program.
“We are excited about his returning to Southside High School, where he has enjoyed previous success both in the classroom and on the football field,” Principal Rick Anderson explained.
Kellum is excited to go back “home” and ready to get to work. “I am real excited, I can’t wait to go back and finish where we started at the place I have been most of my working career.”
With the exception of one year away, Kellum has worked in Beaufort County Schools since 1982 at both Chocowinity High School and Southside High School.
According to Kellum, “My main concern right now is to get a staff together and start working. I hear we have a lot of talented kids and I look forward to meeting them and doing what I need to for them to excel.”
