THE STORY:

I started running when I was an assistant principal at Joe T. Robinson High School in 2014. Staff members Teresa Liberty, Jaime Darrius, and Clyde Kelly told me I should try the Little Rock Marathon.  Nurse John started the biggest looser for the staff on the campus.  There was no question. I knew that I wanted to participate and win.  The rest is history.  Since my Joe T. Robinson days, I have continued to run even since I am a high school principal.  I am committed to improving adult learning so that students can be successful.  Running keeps me balanced and calm when I perform the rigorous job task at Mills Unversity Studies High School.  I chose the Chicago Marathon 2017 because it is one of the world's largest marathons; therefore, on one of the largest stages in the world, I want to bring an awareness to teacher excellence.  Our students deserve it regardless of ehtinicity, economic status, region, and government and politics.  The Golden Apple Foundation for Excellence in Teaching wrote -
