    With Mrs. Mangrum’s recent retirement, former assistant principal Mr. Wright has taken the position of interim principal while the district looks for a new principal. The community has been left wondering who is going to take their place. Grand Ledge schools have called back former staff member Andy George to fill in for the time being. 

    “They asked me to come back and help, and I like it here. All of my family lives here, and so do my friends,” Mr. George said. “I was a psychology teacher, and an assistant superintendent.” In addition to being one of Grand Ledge High School’s previous assistant principals, George has had experience working in multiple other positions in  the school district.

    Mr. George is a tall, friendly looking man, carrying himself with an attitude of confidence. His grey hair may give away his age, but his personality certainly doesn’t. All of his responses are jovial and well thought out, never seeming unsure of himself. He is a long time resident of Grand Ledge, raising all of his children in Wacousta and sending them to Grand Ledge schools. But even after all his time spent in our educational community, Mr. George still has a positive attitude about the high school and its students, noting that they are just as kind as when he left. 

 I’ve lived here all my adult life, and all my kids have graduated from here …  and as far as [the students], they’re still great. You’ve all been so nice to me, and so polite!”

    Since Mrs. Mangrum left the administration in November, the school is still on the search for staff to replace her. It could be weeks, or even months until someone is found, but for now, Mr. Wright and Mr. George are filling in. Helping to be in charge of an entire school can be a daunting task, but regardless of that, Mr. George is very excited to be back, and he is looking forward to all of the new opportunities that the high school has to offer.
