Muriel Summers inspires MCS on Convocation Day

Muriel Summers, an educator known worldwide for her influence on student leadership, began to tear up as she talked about her own fourth-grade teacher. She remembered Miss Rose fondly for taking time each day to express her love to students. “I can’t tell you too much about what she taught me,” Summers said while speaking at Marion City Schools’ Convocation Day on Tuesday. “But I can tell you how she made me feel. I spent my life trying to make her proud. “Can one person make a difference? She did for us and you can for the children whom you serve.”
