Mr. Grice honored as 

New Professional Art Educator of the Year 2019

This October, Jonah Grice, the art teacher at McAdory Elementary School, received a prestigious award in his field. The Alabama Art Education Association awarded him New Professional Art Educator of the Year. This is a big deal! Especially considering that this is only his second year teaching. Shelly Bailey, the Lead Supervisor of Visual Arts Education for Jefferson County Schools, received the Alabama Art Education Association’s Art Educator Supervisor of the Year. Mrs. Bailey was the art teacher at McAdory Elementary several years ago. She built up our art program with the same enthusiasm, passion, and work ethic that Mr. Grice has demonstrated during his time here.
