Eureka High School teacher and coach Farrell Shelton can be
found in classrooms or sidelines cheering for students and
athletes. But Tuesday morning, the situation was the other way
around. Shelton was named a Peabody
Energy Leader in Education for the 2012-13 school year, and
awarded $1,000 for his compassion and commitment to students.
A gym, full of students and fellow teachers, awaited Shelton
when he walked through the doorway, and was utterly "shocked" to
discover the gathering was all for him. Even his wife, daughter,
son and "Momma Shelton" were there to surprise him.
