New Graves Schools Supt. Kim Harrison

Graves County Assistant Superintendent/elementary instructional supervisor Kim Harrison has been promoted to Superintendent of the Graves County Schools, effective July 1. She replaces Pete Galloway, who retires after five years as superintendent and a total of four decades of service as an educator in the district. “I want to contribute as much as I can as a part of that strong team to implement even greater progress,” she said. “I want us to work together to take Graves County to the Distinguished level. I love that phrase, ‘It takes a village to raise a child.’ It really does. Today, that means graduating students who are college and career-ready so they can contribute in significant ways to our society.” School board chairman Ronnie Holmes explained, “After careful consideration, the board believes that Kim Harrison is very experienced in her role as an administrator. She has served in a variety of roles in her career at Graves County and we think that with all that experience, knowledge, and skills, she deserves the opportunity to lead the district. As a district, I think our goal is to make all of our kids college and career-ready and I think that under Kim’s leadership in instruction, we are well on our way to not only reaching that goal but getting better and better at it.” Pictured here are board members with Harrison.
