Mary Jo Grantham


I have lived in Johnston County my entire life and I am a proud graduate of North Johnston High School! My husband and I have been married for 30 years and we have two adult sons. We became "Papa & Gigi" in 2017 to an awesome grandson. We also have three step-grandchildren and several "grandpups". When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time at the beach, fishing, watching HGTV, and tackling small construction projects. 

I am looking forward to an exciting and productive 2019-2020 school year!
