Family of six moves to middle Tennessee for safe schools following deadly Florida shooting
BRENTWOOD, Tenn. (WZTV) —
A family of six moved to middle Tennessee following a deadly shooting at a Florida school in February.
Joslyn Grenier, along with her husband and four children in grades Kindergarten to 5th, moved to Williamson County from Parkland, Florida two weeks ago. They decided to move after the mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School, as their children were zoned to go to that school.
The family's move to Williamson came after the proactive stance that Williamson County Schools Superintendent Mike Looney took to address school security after the Parkland shooting.
Grenier also noted that lower cost of living, excellent test scores and a chance for her kids to experience all four seasons as reasons she moved to Williamson County.
Grenier is a physician assistant and her husband is an ER doctor. Their children go to Jordan Elementary in Brentwood.
Seventeen people died and 17 others were injured in the Florida school shooting. Suspect Nikolas Cruz has been indicted on 34 counts, including charges of premeditated murder and attempted murder. Florida prosecutors are seeking the death penalty in his case.
