Principal's Message

  • Principal’s Message

    It's an absolute honor and pleasure to begin my administrative career at Walnut Grove School. It is a wonderful and loving community that desires the best for its students.  I am here to support you in making them successful citizens.

    I grew up in Hazel Green, Alabama.  I have been blessed to serve this community for 23 years as a third grade teacher, reading specialist, and now as an administrator.  I spent a brief time preparing for this opportunity in Harvest, AL at Endeavor Elementary.  It’s truly a blessing to be back where I began my career in education.  

    On a personal note, I am married to my wonderful husband Timothy who is a pastor in Shelbyville, TN and my best friend.  We have been married for 26 years.  He is a great support system and is always willing to help me complete any school tasks.  I could not serve this community well without his support and assistance.  We love people!  So, we serve, we love, and we care.  

    I am committed to making sure that every student at Walnut Grove has the opportunity to learn at high levels.  I will work hard to make that happen by establishing rich relationships, cultivating a caring and supportive environment, and making sure we have the highest quality personnel to educate our students.  Please know that I am always available to hear your concerns and ways in which we can enhance our wonderful school.  

    Mrs. Yolanda Wright
