During last night’s Pulaski County School Board meeting, Critzer Elementary principal Michael Grim was announced as the new principal for Pulaski County High School.

Grim will replace former PCHS Principal Michael Myers, who left to a accept a job with Northampton Public Schools earlier this year. Former Pulaski Middle School Principal Joseph Reed has been the high school’s interim principal since Myers’ resignation.

“I’m quite honored for this privilege,” said Grim. “It’s kind of bittersweet, because I feel very comfortable at Critzer Elementary, but it’s also a great opportunity. I envision a lot of things for the high school.”

Critzer Elementary Kindergarten teacher Angela Clevinger took advantage of the meeting’s public hearing to share her feelings about her now former principal, congratulating him and expressing appreciation for the opportunity to work with him.

“Nobody enjoys working for a boss, and I got the opportunity for two years to work for a leader,” Clevinger said. “Some people were congratulating him on going to the high school, but I would like to congratulate the high school on getting a leader, not a boss, not a person who asks you to jump through hoops, but seems to generally care and put the needs of students first.”

Dublin Middle School principal Robin Keener will replace Grim at Critzer Elementary starting next school year. A new principal for DMS will be named in the near future.

    Critzer will miss Mr. Grim he was always available anytime a parent had a question. I know he will do great things at PCHS.

    I am absolutely devastated that Mr. Grim will be leaving Critter Elementary because he has been an absolutely amazing principal. He honestly cares about the kids and always willing to help with anything as well as extremely involved with every event at the school! He will be missed.
