Pierschbacher will replace Keith Miller, who is stepping down at the end of the school year after serving eight years as principal.
Pierschbacher earned both his bachelor’s degree and master’s degree from Austin Peay State University.
He served in the U.S. Army, achieving the rank of sergeant, before joining the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System in 2008.
While with the CMCSS, he taught for five years at Kenwood Middle School (two years of eighth-grade Social Studies and three years of eighth-grade math) and two years at Rossview Middle School (eighth-grade math).
He then served as the assistant principal at Rossview Middle School for two and a half years before being named the assistant principal at Kenwood High School, a position he has held since 2017.
Pierschbacher and his wife, Tiffany, have three children, Jude, Ruth and Luke.
“I am honored to be selected as the new principal. Pleasant View is an amazing place. I look forward to being a part of this great community. It is a blessing in my life. I am excited for the coming school year,” he said.
