MCSD teacher nominated for LifeChanger of the Year award

Double Churches Elementary Teacher Eric CrouchThe Muscogee County School District is proud of Double Churches Elementary School's fifth-grade teacher Eric Crouch who has been nominated for the 2019-2020 national LifeChanger of the Year award.

Crouch was nominated by Principal Paula Shaw-Powell for his talent in teaching students to strive for greatness and not limit themselves to their surroundings.

Last year, after Hurricane Michael hit a nearby community, Crouch and his students traveled to Bay County School District and hired a local film crew. Crouch and his students interviewed teachers, principals, and others impacted by the hurricane. The students helped edit a documentary that would be seen and shared thousands of times over social media.

He and his students also created ads and fliers and contacted educational companies to seek help for the thousands of families and students displaced by Hurricane Michael. As a result of the outreach and video, Bay County School District received nearly $2 million in donations.

“Mr. Crouch is always pushing his students to think bigger and better, never letting them settle for the easy route. Through his efforts, his students know that they are world changers,” said Principal Shaw-Powell. “There isn’t anyone more deserving of the honor of LifeChanger of the Year.”
