Here in Tennessee, school administrators are members of the teacher's union. A picture of TEA president, Velma Louise Jones giving Memphis City Schools Superintendent Gerry House an award was published in the TEA newspaper. [Apparently], Velma Louise Jones was attempting to use her position to advance her own career as she will be returning to Memphis City Schools after her "service" with EA. I plan to look for that picture and send it

in to you as soon as I can. I wanted to make you aware of it in case you or someone else could find it before I do.
