“I understand the pride and prestige of Griffin High School. It has been expressed to me by so many. I am honored to take on this leadership role for this school system. My focus is to prepare all students for life after Griffin High and to promote their continuous pursuit of higher education. I truly believe in the motto: 'All means all.'
