Mr. Greg Morris' nomination is for the fact that he and his students did a wonderful job in creating a free library, Tyger Book Barn, for a service organization. They are in the process of making a smaller one for the Third Street Clinic. Their commitment to help this organization further literacy to our community meets one of our goals for the district. He wants his students to be involved in the community through projects of this type. This is a positive for this program and allows the community to see how well our students are doing. In his program his students are learning valuable skills and techniques of construction. They can learn from their mistakes in the classroom rather than on the job when they graduate.

The Mansfield City Schools SkillsUSA Chapter recently received a Quality Chapter Award for successful completion of the chapter excellence program.
"During this project, one of the things we've had to do is do stuff over," Morris explained. "If something doesn't turn out right, it's like, 'Hey guys, this isn't going to work. Someone's not going to buy this.' So we have to figure out how to be able to do it right. When you're in a place where you can make mistakes safely and then correct them, you'll be able to look at a project and say 'Yes, I did good."
