Vandals hit GMS, GHS

Greenville High School and Greenville Middle School were each struck by vandals over the weekend.

At GMS, vandals painted on the plastic portion of the school’s sign, while at GHS the yellow gate that blocks entry into the school after hours was also spray painted.

Greenville police were notified and are investigating the incidents, said GHS Principal Dr. Charles Farmer.

Farmer said he had no problems with students having fun, but there was a line crossed in these two cases.

“This was outright vandalism,” said Farmer. - From Staff Reports
