  • GCHS teacher dies from stroke

    A popular Grant County High School teacher died last week.

    Tom Pitts, an electrical technology instructor at the Grant County Career and Technical Center, died Dec. 17 following a stroke over the weekend.
    He began teaching in Grant County when the career/technical center opened in 2011.


    Earl Hampton, minister of the Vineyard Church of Grant County, came to Mason-Corinth on Dec. 17, to speak with the students in Heather Curd’s third grade class about the events that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary on Dec. 14.

    On that day a gunman entered the school and shot six adults and 20 students before turning the gun on himself.
    Sara Edwards, Family Resource Coordinator at Mason-Corinth Elementary, requested that Hampton visit Mason-Corinth Elementary.
