“I have always been extremely impressed with the students and staff that I have come into contact with from Mountain View, and to now be a member of that community is an absolute dream come true,” Grissom said in the press release. “I am truly honored with being named Principal at Mountain View. I look forward to working with the staff and parents to ensure the best education possible for our students.”
