He has been a teacher, a coach and has served the past 3.5 years in GISD, all as the assistant principal at GMS.
Superintendent Sedric Clark said, “I am pleased to appoint Mr. Floyd to this position. GMS and our district have benefitted from his employment. Mr. Floyd’s love for kids, character and energy will all be assets as he tackles this new assignment. I am certain that GHS will benefit from this appointment”.
