Potter Gray has been blessed to have the best people and teachers work within its walls. With the end of our school year we will say good-bye to four amazing people and outstanding teachers: Mrs. Henson, Mrs. Higdon, Mrs. Littlefield and Mrs. Weatherholt. All of them have brought a dedication and passion to the classroom and school that is unmatched. We are very lucky to have worked with them and watched each one give our students their very best on a daily basis. Thank you for the drive, passion, and commitment you brought to Potter Gray. We will miss you and we all wish you the very best as your life's journey continues.
