Jerry McComb & Jenny Graham

October 2017 is National Principals Month, and we couldn’t think of better people to feature than two of our many amazing principals--new-to-KSSN principal, Jenny Graham, of Glenwood Elementary in the Kentwood Public Schools district, and KSSN veteran principal, Jerry McComb, of Gerald R. Ford Academic Center in the Grand Rapids Public Schools district. Last school year was Glenwood’s first as a community school, while Gerald R Ford Academic Center has been with KSSN for seven years. For our October Spotlight, we get to know both principals a little better, and get their advice for other principals on how to make community schools work in their buildings.
