As I navigated the site to share in the joy of our North Carolina newly-elected Milken Educator Award winning educator, I was moved to tears by this video (June 24, 2016) not only because of the power in its message but because a former teacher of mine, Mrs. Yvonne Griffin and former classmate and fellow basketball team member, Tamika Knight were both featured on the video. Those faces and those narratives took me back to a time when I never would have imagined that I would follow the educator's path. The legacy Mrs. Griffin speaks of makes me so glad that I did.
Congratulations Mrs. Griffin and Ms. Knight.
