TENNESSEE, USA — It takes a village to educate children, and it also takes great leaders in the community and, of course, in the school districts. Now, one Memphis area school district has a new feather in its cap.

Lakeland School System Superintendent Dr. Ted Horrell has been named the 2021 Southwest Tennessee Superintendent of the Year.

Dr. Horrell now is one of eight finalists statewide for the 2021 Tennessee Superintendent of the Year. In a social media post, Lakeland School System said, “Congratulations to LSS superintendent Dr. Ted Horrell for being named the 2021 Southwest Tennessee Superintendent of the Year!

This selection was made by Dr. Horrell’s peer superintendents in the Southwest TN Core District and makes him one of eight finalists statewide for the 2021 Tennessee Superintendent of the Year.

Dr. Horrell said, ‘Every single one of my fellow superintendents is equally deserving of this honor for their incredible work this extraordinary year. I’m humbled to have been selected, and grateful for the benefit of collaborating with such an outstanding group.’”
