Resource officer retires after 20 years

EATONVILLE, MS (WDAM) - A beloved high school resource officer who will be 80-years-old this weekend was the guest of honor at a special school program in Forrest County this afternoon. Arthur Grant turns 80 on Sunday and today, students at North Forrest High School sang "Happy Birthday" to him during a brief assembly in the school's performing arts center. 

Students also gave him a birthday cake.   

Grant has worked at the school for 20 years as a hall monitor and a resource officer and will be retiring at the end of this school year. 

Before coming to the school system, Grant retired as a street maintenance supervisor in California.
