Grenada School District was granted $5 million in additional funding from the State of Mississippi during the May 2024 legislative session. The funds were awarded based on a proposal to confront the community’s growing population and workforce needs by establishing a dynamic new learning program, the Entrepreneurial and Innovation Center (EIC).

Projected to open for students in the 2026-2027 school year, the EIC will serve as GSD’s outstanding learning environment for fostering entrepreneurship and innovation.

The state legislature’s funding makes it possible to conduct significant renovations to a district-owned property, the 30,000 square-foot building that formerly housed the Daily Star and will serve as the EIC’s home.

Grenada School District hosted its first track meet in over 25 years this spring. The Grenada Invitational, held March 26, brought six other schools from around the region to compete on Grenada’s new rubber track and field as part of the refurbished Charger Stadium.

Jeff Williams, head coach for the boys and girls teams at both Grenada High and Middle Schools, said the meet allowed the program to show off its new track and field space as well as its top athletes.

Grenada High School’s Visions show choir capped off a stellar season with the biggest prize ever received by the program — a second-place trophy from the Show Choir Nationals competition at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tenn. Their competition show, "Ugly," earned two grand championships at competitions throughout Mississippi. 

The middle school choir, Entertainers, also competed well around the state with their show, "Beetlejuice," and the GES 4-5 choir, Pizzazz, captured many first-place titles with their show, "Catch a Wave."

GHS Internships Flourish this Spring

The internship program at Grenada High School continues to expand, granting students real-world work experience in their chosen career path as well as a generous hourly wage.

Tiffany Reed, Career Coach at GHS, has matched several seniors with local businesses that suit their interests. The experience is proving mutually beneficial for both students and businesses.

Several students are currently working in a variety of professional roles with internship positions at local businesses including the Carlos Moore Law Group, Psychosocial Solutions, and Horan Family Dental.

In addition to a fleet of 28 new air-conditioned school buses, the district’s transportation department has added two new electric (EV) buses. 

GSD Transportation Director Benji Britt said the new EV buses arrived free of charge to the district through a federal EPA grant. 

The EV buses have been employed to run short routes in town and have performed exceedingly well.The daily energy expenses are estimated to be about $5 a day less than traditional diesel fuel, and if those savings hold true, that could add up over time.

On Feb. 20, the district unveiled its new Mobile Fab Lab. The traveling STEM lab is the result of a collaboration of Grenada School District with the Grenada Public Education Foundation and local industry.

The eye-catching, 38-foot trailer and F-450 Ford towing pick-up, donated by Kirk Auto Group. Milwaukee Tool made a generous donation for state-of-the-art fabrication equipment and tools to make the rolling classroom a training ground for students and community members interested in joining the growing local workforce.
