As reported 42 years ago in the pages of The Columbia News, Wednesday, June 17, 1970:
New principal hired
Columbia County school officials have announced that Edgar Caddell has been employed as the new principal of Martinez Elementary for the 1970-71 school year.
Caddell is presently the head coach and athletic director at Garrett High School in Charleston, S.C.
Caddell received his bachelors degree from Newberry College and his masters degree from Appalachian State University.
He has seven years teaching experience and an outstanding record as head coach and athletic director.
Caddell is married with one child, and will be moving to the area sometime after July 1.
Patricia Ann Frederick, Evans High School valedictorian, is one of four CSRA graduates to be selected as an Augusta College Faculty Scholar.
The four Faculty Scholars will attend Augusta College, financed by the newly created Augusta College Faculty Scholars Fund. The four-year award is the only one of its type at AC, as it is awarded solely on academic talent, not financial need.
The fund was created by the faculty to help curb the number of academically talented students who choose to attend college out of the state of Georgia.
“Hopefully,” said Admissions Director John R. McNeal, “this will help retain outstanding students in the Central Savannah River Area.”

Rayman has been authorized to spend $5,000 for immediate local purchases to help meet to most pressing needs.
