Today, Ellen invited Michael Scruggs to the show to share his story. Michael is a high school Social Studies teacher at W.E.B. Du Bois Charter School in Memphis. Over the years, Michael has started each class with a motivational mantra that he says aloud with his students. When Michael is off duty, he hosts multiple events in several communities and leads a mentoring program for past students in which he focuses on maintaining relationships with teens in the inner city, and volunteering.
After hearing Michael’s inspirational story, and the story of one of his former students, Ellen’s friends at Shutterfly surprised Michael with $20,000 so he can keep helping people in his community!
Shutterfly’s mission is to share life’s joy. Find out more about Shutterfly, here!
