A Message from Our Superintendent

To the Families, Community, Staff, and Students of Grant Public Schools, 

It is with great enthusiasm and even greater gratitude that I am writing this to all of you. My name is Brett Zuver, and I am beginning my service to each of you as the new superintendent of Grant Public Schools. The strong community and reputation of excellence that Grant Public Schools and the community of Grant have are things that I cannot wait to become a part of. There are several people that I have known and met both personally and professionally through the years that either are from Grant or have worked at Grant Public Schools. Every single one of these people has been impressive with their leadership capacity, their ability to care for others, and their ability to put the needs of students first.

I come to Grant most recently from Kenowa Hills High School where I served as their high school principal. Prior to that, I was the high school principal at Belding High School, the athletics director at Belding High School, and before that, I was a collegiate basketball coach at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. I grew up in Ionia, not too far from here, in a community that is very similar to Grant with its strong pride and caring community spirit.

Having the opportunity to meet and work with everyone here in Grant is something that I cannot wait to experience. There are three areas that I strongly feel make a significant impact in any relationship or organization: trust, value, and appreciation. Being able to trust one another, value one another, and show genuine appreciation to one another on a daily basis is absolutely the most important thing there is. I am truly looking forward to meeting everyone and having the chance to learn from all of you and experience what makes Grant and Grant Public Schools so special. 

Feel free to drop by and chat anytime. I will be out and about quite a bit throughout the school year and look forward to seeing everyone. Being able to support our students at all levels with both their academic and extracurricular interests is a thrill for me.

Thank you again for the tremendous welcome. We will all do great things together. Go Tigers!

Sincerely, 

Brett Zuver

Brett Zuver, Superintendent Grant Public Schools
