New Grayson County Health Department director named

By  | 

GRAYSON COUNTY, TX -- A new director has been named for the Grayson County Health Department.

Tuesday morning Grayson County Commissioners announced Amanda Ortez as the new director.

She's been with the department for almost ten years and previously served as the public information specialist.

Ortez will take on both jobs for now, until someone else is selected to fill her old position.

Former director John Teel stepped down in March to accept a position in Plano.

Tonight on News 12 we'll hear from Ortez about her plans for the department's future.
