A few days ago, I told you about my trip to Dadeville Elementary in Tallapoosa County to be interviewed by their sixth-grade TV crew for one of their morning broadcasts. These are broadcast on the Tiger News Network (TNN). You can find them on YouTube
The anchors that morning who interviewed me were Addison Spates and Alana Tolbert. That’s Addison on the left and Alana on the right in the picture. The identity of the big guy is yet to be determined.
It is not uncommon for me to wear orange and blue since I am a proud Auburn University grad. And I did the morning I became a TV personality. Addison let me know he is an Auburn fan—but Alana made no bones about the fact she likes the University of Alabama.
Well, me being me, I had to spring into action. So off I went to a store that has about 4 million Auburn T-shirts and got two of them. And on Valentine’s Day I went to Dadeville Elementary again to deliver the shirts. Alana was a trooper and put hers on right away and promised she would wear it the rest of the day.
While at the school, I had the pleasure of meeting the mothers of both Alana and Addison. That was neat and I appreciated them being there
This is a fine school with lots of community support and a super faculty and students. Oh, the new state report card says it is a C school. Which I believe is just more proof of how stupid this grading system is.
