I was very fortunate to grow up in a great Tupelo Public School system! Caring, bright teachers gave me an excellent preparation for college and law school. Both our son and daughter had excellent educational opportunities in the TPSD as well.

My vision is for TPSD to be one of the Top 10 Public School Systems in America. Our business and family is committed to do our part to make this a reality.

The spelling bee is a big deal to me because only one kid each year can win and it's very special. I like Tupelo schools because all my friends are here. I have a lot of good memories in the Tupelo schools. So, the Tupelo Public School District and the spelling bee mean a lot to me.

When I think of Tupelo Public Schools, the first think that comes to mind is a wonderful environment to learn and grow. Not only are there great teachers and staff, but there are also lots of opportunities to make life long friends.TPSD is a tradition in my family. My brothers and I have grown up in TPSD. This is what the TPSD means to me.

TPSD has shaped me as an individual and has helped me find my identity. As a Tupelo native, this will always be home. The people in this community have given me these amazing opportunities to learn and grow each and everyday. From the many life lessons, to the cheers and chants, I know the true meaning of one wave.
