The Grant County Middle School students have a new principal.
John Preston has been named as principal of Grant County Middle School. Preston assumed the role of principal on July 1, replacing Tim Grayson, who accepted a position with Newport Independent Schools.

Preston is not a new face in the community and became a member of the GCMS administrative team after coming to Grant County Middle School as an assistant principal for the 2013-2014 school year.
