Mr. Williams, custodian at John Griffin Middle SchoolEvery level of our school community at John Griffin Middle School (JGMS) exemplifies excellence and is necessary to the attainment of our optimal goal— student achievement. Our custodial staff works without end to make sure that JGMS students have the best environment possible to academically thrive.  We would like to spotlight Mr. Bobby Williams for his efforts.

Mr. Williams goes beyond the scope of a traditional custodian. He stays for hours after his shift to assist fellow custodians with the completion of their tasks, organizes our student lost and found, and drives students to extracurricular events throughout the county whenever asked to do so without complaint. He can often be found giving others encouraging words or brightening their day with his priceless smile. Our school community would not be the same without valuable members like Mr. Williams.
