The Griffin-Spalding County School System (GSCS) named David and Ashley Mangham from Cowan Road Elementary School as the district-level Most Valuable Parents (MVP). The Manghams were honored during the Griffin-Spalding Board of Education meeting on February 6.  Mr. and Mrs. Mangham actively participate in workshops and volunteer during school events, classroom parties and trips.

“Mr. and Mrs. Mangham value education and are deeply involved and invested in their children’s education. You can see them around the school building daily, ready to take on any task or lend a hand to positively impact the classroom and school. They make contributions regularly to the classroom to benefit all students,” said Cowan Road Elementary Assistant Principal Misty Garvin.

GSCS is also proud to recognize the school-level MVPs for January 2018:

  • Anne Street Elementary- De’Vay & Roderick Fluellyn
  • Crescent Elementary- Stephanie Marshall
  • Futral Road Elementary- Melissa Styler
  • Griffin High School- Jamie Paul
  • Jackson Road Elementary- Kathy Anthony
  • Jordan Hill Elementary- Allen Maddox
  • Rehoboth Road Middle- Gary Pline


GSCS began the MVP Program in 2011 as a way to increase parent engagement. This district-level program recognizes parent volunteers who make outstanding contributions to our schools. Each month the schools choose an exceptional volunteer to be their school-level MVP. From the school-level nominees, a district-level MVP is selected. Last school year GSCS recognized over 90 MVPs. Seventy-four volunteers have been recognized to date during the 2017-18 school year.
