Grumley was hired in 1999 as SMAHS principal and was transferred to SSMSE as principal in 2001. Superintendent Ann Kearney described Grumley as being a legend in the district and has been highly respected.
"He knows his students and parents and has led the school to high levels of academic achievement. He has certainly 'touched the future'," Kearney said. She wished Grumley and his wife Maria best of luck in their retirements.
