Recently, while speaking to a group of Memphians committed to raising the number of college graduates in the city, Dorsey Hopson started out by saying, "thanks."
Six months ago, he could not have envisioned standing before the attendees as the interim superintendent of the newly merged Shelby County Schools, he said.
Well, if so, that means that he did not see coming then what happened to him on Tuesday night. The Shelby County Board of Education – a seven-member body operating one short – unanimously turned to Hopson to lead the district on a permanent basis. The move meant the end of a nationwide search to find "the right person" for the job.
