Thumbs of the Week: Local volunteers selected for awards
Thumbs up to Mt. Juliet High School principal Mel Brown for his years of service in education. Mt. Juliet High School principal Mel Brown is set to retire June 30, and he reflected Tuesday on his path through education and his plans for retirement. Brown’s 45-year career features numerous roles, resulting in several personal and school awards and recognition. “I’ve always said, ‘if I could get to my back porch.’ That’s kind of my enjoyable place. They ask if I’m going to travel, what I’ll do and so on. I don’t know, but I know one thing, if I get all my ‘honey do’ jobs done, and I get to the back porch, I’m going to have a good day. I’m really just waiting for what the Lord’s got for me out there,” Brown said.
