Larry Walker - Principal

Hello, I appreciate the trust you have shown in allowing me to be a part of your child’s educational experience in Gilmer County. I am a native of Gilmer County and believe that small town folks can do big time things. My 
commitment is to broaden the possibilities for your child and to help them be the best that they can be! I have two girls, Mary Elizabeth and Hannah, who are both enrolled in Gilmer County Schools. I would encourage each of you to be as active as you can in your child’s education. Tomorrow’s leaders are built today in our schools!! The faculty and staff of Gilmer Middle School are all dedicated to producing life-long learners. I am looking forward to continuing to work towards helping the children of Gilmer County achieve their goals dreams. Thanks!!
