Gregory Burrell, Ellijay

Nominated by Rebecca Burrell)
Gilmore High School
July 30, 2011

My son, Greg, is an educator.  He has taught Special Education, coached, has been the Athletic Director, an Assistant Principal, and a Principal.  This year the local board of education decided to close the 144 year-old institution where he was the principal. It has been a trying year for him with his efforts to convince them to leave the school open and then efforts to turn the school into a charter school all to no avail.
