Poster printing in celebration would certainly not be out of place for Ms. Coes, who teaches Special Education English Language, Arts, and Reading. Now the proud winner of the always wonderfully early 2014 Georgia Teacher of the Year award, she goes on to represent the state at the National awards.
The committed teacher, who is driven to help others, said in her application:
“You have a choice. Choose wisely. This is one of the most important lessons that I hope to instill in the life of every student that I come in contact with.”
It is not all glory though. As holder of the award, Coes is asked to serve as the Georgia advocate for public education. Talking about the new role for which the Georgia Southern University alumuni has been appointed, Dr. John Barge, the State School Superintendent said:
“Jemelleh Coes is going to be a wonderful representative of the teaching profession in Georgia.”
“As the daughter of immigrants from Guyana, Ms. Coes worked hard to become a teacher and make a difference in the life of a child. Now she will have the opportunity to share her story and passion with many others.”
The award was presented at the start of May, at the annual banquet. Held at the Georgia International Convention Center, it was a glittering event that celebrated all finalists for this year.

Blue and White fans were recorded cheering and celebrating as movie crews took to the field at Paulson Stadium, recording key scenes for the upcoming movie ‘Erk’. The motion picture is a biopic of legendary Eagles head football coach Erskine Russell, with the film taking its name from his nickname.
‘Erk’, who died in the fall of 2006, headed up the squad from 1981 through 1989. To ensure authenticity at the filming, the fans being shot by the crew were dressed in typical clothing from the 1980s. Big hair, shoulder pads, big sweaters, and neon colors were all duly on display.
Quoted at the release of the cast request, the movie’s producer, Beau Turpin, said:
“We want to capture the essence of Paulson Stadium as it was in 1984.”
Eagles games always have a good atmosphere, but expected repeat takes were needed. This ensured that such formalities as the angles and lighting were correct, but the crowd literally rose to the occasion.
Turpin, a GSU alumnus, also requested for fans not to overdo things too much. Rather than create an 80s retrospective, realism was needed. However, calls for fans to bring their own noise-makers, such as milk jug-shakers, did seem to have been listened to.
Fans attending the game will look forward to the late 2013 release, to see if they made the coach’s final cut, and will no doubt look out for poster printing to advertise its release.
