With the temperature hovering just below triple digits, a crowd gathered on the lawn of the Collierville Schools Administration building on the afternoon of Sunday, July 27th to support and celebrate the upcoming school year. Next week will mark the official start of school for Collierville Schools and the faith community within the Town gathered together to pray for Collierville Schools. The ceremony began with Mayor Stan Joyner reading a proclamation declaring August 4th, 2014, the first day of classes, as "Excellence in Education Day."
"With this historic day," said Mayor Joyner, "let us all commit to ensuring that all our children receive a quality education that expands their horizons, inspires them to achieve their dreams and instills in them a confidence and character that will be their guiding light for success."
