  • When Vine Grove Elementary School interim assistant principal Kerry Reeves walked the halls of Clarkson Elementary School in Grayson County in the late ’60s and early ’70s, it was as a student.

    When he walked them in 1979, it was as a custodian.

    When he walks them this fall, it will be as principal.

    “I truly am going back home,” Reeves, 51, said.

    He will work with teachers who were students at the elementary school when he was custodian.
