Sitting down with Harrison County School District’s incoming superintendent | #teacher | #children | #kids

“Education, I guess, has to be a calling, to a certain extent. From a very early age, education was instilled in me by my parents. Neither one of my parents finished high school, so they were insistent that I finished high school because my dad said the only way you’re ever going to be able to make a living without doing jobs you’re not going to be happy with is to get an education, so he pushed that. From there I just fell in love with helping people,” King said. “When you first start coaching, you’re dealing with young people and you’re dealing with decisions with how they’re molded and how they become what they are, and I have students to this day come back and say they remember something I did or said when I was coaching from some 40 years ago, so it was just a calling that over the years I had embedded in me, and I never looked back. I never really wanted to do anything else.”
