Welcome to Davis, Dr. Grigsby!

The Davis Magnet School community is pleased to welcome Dr. Kathleen Grigsby as our new principal! Dr. Grigsby received her doctoral degree from Mississippi College in August 2011 before accepting her first principal assignment at Marshall Elementary that same year. She has been an educator in JPS schools since 2001 when she became a first grade teacher at Woodville Heights Elementary School. She has been named a School Teacher of the Year twice–in 2003 and 2005. She brings to Davis Magnet a wealth of classroom, professional development, and research experience.  We are looking forward to a great year at Davis.
