    It’s great to be a Settles Bridge Superstar!  My name is Mark Graves, and I serve as one of the Assistant Principals at our fabulous school. 

    This will be my sixth year as an Assistant Principal at Settles Bridge, and my 12th year as an administrator.  I graduated from Furman University, and obtained a Master’s Degree from Florida State University.  I also attended the University of Tennessee where I played college football.  In 2006 I obtained my leadership degree from Kennesaw State University.  As a classroom teacher, I taught both second and fourth grade.  I’m married and have two wonderful children.  My goal each day is to make a positive impact on the lives of the children I serve.  I look forward to another successful school year here at Settles Bridge.  Just remember, you’re a Superstar, no matter where you are!
