1/3/2018 MDJ: Rivera looks back on first year as Marietta’s superintendent
Marietta City Schools Superintendent Grant Rivera began his new role at the beginning of 2017, and in 12 short months, has won the support of the community with his vision for the future.
Speaking just before Christmas over coffee on the Square, Rivera took a look back at his first year at the helm of Marietta’s school system and discussed some of his plans for the district going forward.
He conceded he had big shoes to fill when he left his job with Cobb County schools to take the place of longtime Marietta Superintendent Emily Lembeck, but the city’s mayor and Marietta High’s former principal say he’s done a standup job so far.

He immediately accepted.
If that seems like things are moving too fast for any prospect, get used to it. That is the new normal for a likely future 5-star down the road. The 6-foot-5, 235-pounder flashed his immense skill set as a receiver last spring on the 7-on-7 circuit.
