MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - One Memphis educator received a special surprise Monday when the school held a pep rally and celebration for her.
Dr. Sharon Griffin was named as one of the Education Week National Leaders to Learn From and the school rallied behind their 'rock star'.
Dr. Griffin thought she was attending a cabinet meeting at Douglass High School when she arrived at the school early Monday morning. She didn't know the school was waiting to greet her.
Known as "Dr. G," she has helped turn around some of the lowest performing schools into some of the highest performing schools.
She was greeted at the school Monday by cheerleaders, the pep band, majorettes, principals and schools from each iZone school, cabinet members, and family members.
