COLUMBIA — If you were to go through Missourian stories since January, as our librarian, Nina Johnson, recently did, you would find that Grant Elementary School is mentioned more than other schools in Columbia. (I’m excluding Hickman and Rock Bridge high schools, which get a lot of sports-related press.) I bet that Lee Elementary School would come in second, although we didn’t check that.
