MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - The Shelby County School District's Chief of Schools got a special surprise Monday! Doctor Sharon Griffin has been named one of the Ed Week National Leaders to Learn From.
Monday morning, students, teachers, and family members threw a surprise party for the educator.
Dr. Griffin thought she was attending a cabinet meeting at Douglass High School, when she was welcomed by the school pep band, cheerleaders, principals, and students from I-zone schools which she used to head, and family members.
“Dr Griffin is truly a blessing to our community, her humility is unmatched, her drive is unlike anything I have ever seen and I think just her passion for the work.”
SCS leaders said Doctor "G" is truly making a difference in the community and is very worthy of this award.
