Retiring educator guided, inspired students
Battles have been fought and won. Kings and queens have been crowned. Laws have been passed and new worlds discovered, all thanks to a man who’s been bringing history to life at Tunica Academy for over four decades.
As the school year came to a close, Richard Fullilove graded his last papers as a TA teacher. The school honored him with a plaque for his years of service at graduation on May 16 and held a faculty luncheon in his honor on May 21.
Fullilove said he can’t believe how fast the years have gone by since he and his wife Danna moved to Tunica as a young couple. He was teaching in Cleveland at Bayou Academy and she was teaching in Gunnison, Miss. when they decided to see if there was a school out there that both could call home.
“We were hoping to teach in the same school and sent some applications in,” Fullilove said.
