He later moved to Utah. He touched on the interview process in which he went through. He met with 15 students, 15 parents, 7-8 more parents, High School and distract administration and then 2 board members. Greg mentioned how he gets kids, technology, and social media. He has been starting some new traditions at Concord. He also mentioned how his goal is to be number 1 and wants to really push Concord to be the best. Through out the presentation Greg kept mentioning where we go one, we go all. This is considered the new Concord motto/way. He wants to make the students accountable.
