When Brunswick County Schools Superintendent Katie McGee first met Bob Grimes, he left a lasting impression, she recalled.
Since then, Grimes appears to be leaving an impression on just about everyone he meets, including his peers in the school district.
Friday, Grimes, the North Brunswick High School principal, was named Brunswick County’s Principal of the Year.
Grimes was bestowed the honor for a number of achievements, including leading NBHS from being a school in turnaround status to one that had the largest increase in proficiencies for 2008-2009.
Grimes led a school-wide team toward these improvements, without the aid of any outside consultants.
For years, he has had a positive impact on the lives of Brunswick County students. In addition to being NBHS principal he has also served as a teacher, coach and assistant principal at Shallotte Middle School where he guided that school to be a school of distinction and winner of the Super Safe School Award.
The Principal of the Year award is one of many accomplishments in Grimes’ role as an educator. Congratulation to him for a job well done.
