If teacher Tamarah Danzy of the 8th Grade Center hasn't already racked up enough wins . . . now she's ready to conquer television. On Thursday, June 8, she will be joining Pat Sajak and Vanna White as a contestant on "Wheel of Fortune." Principal Michelle Cundy and 8th Grade Center staff will be getting together for a watch party to see how well Tamarah performs. (Although the segment's already been taped, her lips are sealed -- but we wouldn't bet against her!) The program airs at 6:30 p.m. on KTUL-Channel 8.
A year ago, Danzy was one of two educators in Oklahoma to bring home the $25,000 Milken Educator Award, the "Academy Awards of teaching." Two years ago, as Union Varsity Cheer Head coach, she was named OCA Region 7 Coach of the Year.
