“We hope the community is as proud of these new facilities as we all are. The board has made significant investments in these new facilities and we welcome the community to come and see the new buildings for themselves. These new facilities will serve the needs of our system for generations to come,” Grady County School Superintendent Dr. Kermit Gilliard said this week.
