Griffin schools principal Greg Woods will become the principal/superintendent of the 670-student school district in the Steamboat Island area near Olympia on July 1.
Last fall, Griffin Superintendent Don Brannam announced that he will retire after this school year. Brannam, who also works part time as the superintendent of the Grapeview School District in Mason County, was a finalist last month for a schools chief job in Warrenton-Hammond School District in Oregon. He was not selected.
Woods grew up in Olympia, received undergraduate degrees from Washington State University and got a master’s degree and administrative credentials from City University.
