About The Author — Garris L. Stroud

Hello! I’m Garris L. Stroud, a teacher, writer, and education advocate from Greenville, Kentucky. I’m a proud graduate of Murray State University, where I received both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in education. I’m a middle school language arts teacher in Hopkins County, and I’m honored to have been recently named a semi-finalist for 2020 Kentucky Teacher of the Year.

Throughout my leadership roles, I strive to be a positive advocate for educational equity for students across the Bluegrass. My desire is to use this platform to highlight the great work being done around the state to help lead all students to success, and to communicate to teachers how state-level education policies and accountability measures may influence equity for Kentucky’s students.
