A fine teacher and a fine person.
Roane County Board of Education Member Mike “Brillo” Miller used those words to describe Deborah Garrett, music teacher at Ridge View Elementary School in Rockwood for 25 years.
Garrett passed away last year. Miller said the staff at Ridge View requested that the stage in the auditorium be named in her memory.
“I support that 100 percent,” he said.
His fellow board members did as well, approving the motion unanimously at the March 15 board meeting.
