  • School board names Greear as personnel director

    Judy Greear has been hired as the Director of Personnel and Operations for the Grayson County School System.
    Greear was appointed by the Grayson County School Board at it’s meeting July 12.
    She replaces Chad Newman who resigned last month to accept the job as principal of Sheffey Elementary School in Wythe County.
    Greear has been principal of the Independence Middle School for the past two years.
    An advertisement appeared in last week’s edition of Declaration seeking applications for the job. The deadline to apply is July 21.

  • School should open by August

    If all goes as planned — though nothing has so far — the new Grayson Highlands School will open Aug. 9 for the beginning of the 2010-11 school year.
    Board members received the update on the school from Maintenance Supervisor Roy Anders during its regular meeting July 12.
    Anders said construction of the turning lanes to the school — which were holding up the project — started last week, and the contractors have a projected finishing date of four weeks.
