Marshonn Calvin

Position: Broadcasting Program Director/ Instructor
School: Millington Central High School
School District: Millington Municipal Schools
City, State: Millington, TN

Support Marshonn

Marshonn Calvin, Sr. was nominated by his former student, Jessica Tackett.

Mr. Calvin is a broadcasting instructor at Millington Central High School, and a former technical manager for a variety of local news stations throughout the Mid-South. Though born in Kankakee, IL, Mr. Calvin decided to move back down south in order to familiarize himself with his family roots, which originated from East Baton Rouge, LA and Clarksdale, MS. Originally, Mr. Calvin didn’t plan to pursue broadcasting, as he initially majored in graphic arts. 

While attending Rust College in Mississippi, he secured an opportunity to work at the university’s WURC 88.1 FM radio station and RC-TV2 television station. These experiences allowed him to become familiar with a whole new career path that greatly served his interests.

After switching his major to mass communication, Mr. Calvin pursued a series of internships for the NBC News World Headquarters at Rockefeller Plaza, and at the NBC Eastcoast Operations office in Brooklyn, NY which presented a great opportunity for him to become more familiar with the intricacies of broadcasting. There, he performed daily research and content analysis for a variety of well known series such as “Another World”, “The Cosby Show”, “The Conan O’Brien Show” and “Dateline NBC”. While reminiscing, Mr. Calvin remarked often upon how these internships truly lit the fire underneath him, and helped him develop a passion for broadcasting.

After his internships and subsequent graduation from Rust College, Mr. Calvin spent time as floor manager and engineering operator at a variety of stations. Most notably, he spent time at NBC WTVA News Channel 9 in Tupelo, MS and WREG News Channel 3 in Memphis, TN. While he didn’t stay at either of these stations, Mr. Calvin was able to develop hands-on experience. These experiences helped propel him to the location at which he would spend the next ten years of his working life: WMC TV-5 (now called WMC Action News 5). Throughout his tenure there, he served as production manager, floor manager, and even crew chief for a time. 

Mr. Calvin claimed that his work at Channel 5 (WMC TV-5) was the most enriching experience he had ever enjoyed throughout his time as a broadcasting professional, though it wasn’t without struggles. He was required to work long, often grueling hours while handling a multitude of projects and responsibilities. This never dissuaded him, though, as he proclaimed that old adage of “if you enjoy what you’re doing, you never work a day in your life”.

When asked if he would've rather done anything else, including returning to the world of graphic arts, Mr. Calvin said he had no regrets about the path he had taken. Broadcasting is where he feels he has truly been able to express himself. Furthermore, he claimed to have been kept interested in the field because of his appreciation for the art of “news”. He often remarked how he enjoyed being in the know, deeming it rewarding, and felt it ultimately contributed to his growth as both a professional and individual. Though he was presented with a variety of more lucrative offers throughout his career, Mr. Calvin kept feeling the call of the station. It helped that Tamela Woods-Calvin, his wife and one of his primary inspirations, also has an extensive background in television. She is the television station manager for TBN’s (Trinity Broadcasting Network) Memphis Local Affiliate WBUY TV-40, and she has helped motivate her husband in continuing his career in broadcasting. 

In 2003, despite such an extensive and satisfying career in television management, Mr. Calvin decided it was time for a change. Working at WMC TV-5 had been one of the most fulfilling opportunities he had ever experienced, but the increasingly grim focus of the local news industry on negative news had dissuaded him from continuing any further. After discussing this with some of his mentors in the industry, Mr. Calvin decided the only way to give back would be to become a teacher. He ended up choosing Millington Central High School, as the staff were extremely receptive to the idea of developing a broadcasting program at the school. Mr. Calvin was not only hired as the sole broadcasting instructor at the time, but he had also been given authority to design the entire department himself according to his own layouts and expectations. This was a fairly impressive privilege bestowed upon someone who had no prior experience in the education system. In his fourteen years of teaching, hundreds of students have successfully graduated from his broadcasting program.

"Mr. Calvin has been the only father figure most of us have ever had, and he goes above and beyond to help mentor all of us," Tackett said. "Mr. Calvin helped me through so many situations that I had to endure during my four years in high schoool at Millington Central High School. I wouldn't have made it through my senior year in 2016 without his guidance. He is not only my favorite teacher, but he is the only father figure that I have and can always depend on." 

Broadcasting students from his class have consistently proven competitive in The National and Memphis Regional NAACP ACT-SO competition. Two students have won silver and bronze medals from The National Telly Awards and The Communicators Awards for filmmaking. One of Calvin’s most notable projects at Millington Central High has been the school’s TV show, “Trojan TV”, which he began operating in 2009. While this program is notable for providing a great service to the school, it has also managed to keep a lot of troubled kids out of harms way. One of Mr. Calvin’s most commonly used phrases was that “you’ve got to keep the students busy and out of trouble”. 

The students of Millington Central High School are a diverse bunch, consisting of both the privileged and impoverished. Mr. Calvin noticed an opportunity to help elevate those with troubles at home to a position where they could make something out of themselves. He remarked upon how you would have to be invested in each student's life beyond the traditional role of an instructor, often acting as both their parent and counselor.

"I know personally that Mr. Marshonn S. Calvin, Sr. goes above and beyond to make sure his students have good self esteem, and that they are preparing for their future enderevors," Tackett said. "Many of the student’s families in the communities of Millington, TN and Memphis, TN cannot afford to financially support a broadcasting program such as this one, and we are in need of help from NBC News."

On the note of professionalism, Mr. Calvin keeps students updated with the current trends of the industry, often presenting them with technology that studios aren’t using now, but look to use in the future when the students will have graduated. Much like his time as a broadcasting professional, Mr. Calvin doesn’t plan on teaching forever. After he retires from Millington Central High School, he mentioned the next medium he wanted to pursue was that of film. He plans to create books and short films, each of which would be associated with a specific theme, such as civil rights, the history of music, documentaries, and successful relationships. Accompanied by his wife Tamela and a few of his former students, he considers this to be an exciting prospect, yet another grand opportunity in a life which he considers immensely blessed.

"Calvin’s personal philosophy is perhaps one of the most honest, altruistic, and straightforward any man could claim to uphold," Tackett said. "He extols the values of pursuing opportunity, taking whatever chances you may be given in order to advance yourself in life. Though he is a humble man and would not admit this to your face, he exists without a doubt as proof of this philosophy, as he came from extremely humble beginnings and fulfilled a nearly 30-year long career in which he has touched thousands of lives with great benefit. The focus was never placed upon Marshonn Calvin, rather it was his family, mentors, friends and the population at large which he has served almost every day of his adult life."

One of Calvin's favorite quotes by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr says: “An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of their individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”

"My former broadcasting teacher, Mr. Marshonn Calvin, is so desrving of this prestigious honor and should be recognized for all of his hardwork and dedication to students of Millington Central High School," Tackett said.

Mr. Calvin. Words cannot begin to describe this wonderful man. He has changed so many students lives, mine included. No matter your background, what you had going on at home, no matter who you were, Mr. Calvin treated each student with love and respect. He only wants the best out of all his students and pushes you to be the best you can be, even when you don’t see it yourself at first.

Doris OConnor Posted 11 months ago

It gives me great pride and joy to strongly recommend Marshonn Calvin for the "Life Changer Award." I have known Marshonn since he was 6 years old and in my first grade class. I am so proud of the outstanding young man and teacher he has become. I could see that he was no ordinary first grader and that he was destined to have an impact on his world. In first grade, I saw the traits that made that young man the mature, admirable man he is today. Marshonn had a positive attitude and did not get discouraged when challenges came his way. He just worked harder. Marshonn was very respectful to me, his other teachers and the children in his class. This isn't always easy when you are the new kid in school. There is no other way to say it than this; that little young fella had a loving heart and a concern for others that few children his age manifested . The other trait that I noticed in Marshonn was his ability to clearly analyze his world and then to fluently verbalize his thoughts. I remember telling his mother that Marshonn was destined for great things and it would not surprise me if someday he became a representative or senator and I would see him on TV. In my mind he has done great things for his family, his students, his church and his community. I'd like to think that he became something even better than a politician.......he became Teacher! A teacher who cares for and respects his students and colleagues. He is a teacher who works harder when faced with a challenge like building an award winning broadcast communications program from scratch. He is a man who teaches with respect and a loving heart. He analyzes what his students need and clearly articulates his hope and concern for them to achieve all that they can. I feel so fortunate to still be in contact with Marshonn and I hope to see him win this well deserved award. Then it will be with great joy that I will say to all who knew him in his growing up years," I told you so."

We hope that you all pick our mentor and father figure Mr. Marshonn Calvin because he truly deserves this Life Changer of The Year Award.

Karvis Jones Posted 11 months ago

I had the honor to meet Marshonn during my senior year at Rust College while I was an intern at WMC-TV in Memphis. His personality stood out to me in a lot of ways and he pushed me to excel to the level. Some of the work ethics I saw from him during my internship showed me that with hard work, I could go far in the media industry. Marshonn is a great role model in the community and his love to see his students succeed is remarkable. I'm happy to call Marshonn a friend.

The man that sparked my interest in production. Trojan TV was the best class ever i made many friends and learned many things all due to Mr. Calvin! Gave me true ambition to want more out of life.

Demetre' V. Jones Posted 11 months ago

A true gem. Scholar. Mentor. And man of God. Marshonn entailed so many life skills and words of wisdom on behalf of my life to the point where I can say that I am a great person today. I remember first encountering Mr. Calvin and he assumed that I was only in his class to pass time. Little did he know I had a passion for technology and mass communication. Over the course of my high school career we bonded, and he is one of the father figures that I still call on in time of need. This award would be one achievement that he’s definitely deservant of.

Lamont Matthews Sr (The Shadow) Posted 11 months ago

Mr. Marshonn Calvin was a co worker of mine at WMC-TV for years. He developed his skills and knowledge of broadcasting so he could go one to be a broadcasting teacher. He always talked to me about doing that so I encouraged him to seek out employment in the school system. I knew he would succeed at once he got in and he and his classes have always had access to WMC-TV 5 for tours and learning. Marshonn is a class act and a great friend. The Shadow

Candi Norwood Posted 11 months ago

Mr. Calvin is an example of why it is SO important to have instructors from industry. These students connect with him because he is teaching them real skills that can contribute to their successes as adults. He has connections and knows where to place students to provide them with opportunities for success. The students would not be winning these awards if Mr. Calvin did not provide them with the opportunity to compete. How would they know about these opportunities for awards otherwise? In addition to this, he genuinely cares about the welfare of the students in his classroom. He not only teaches, but also motivates, inspires, and encourages. He is truly an exemplar educator and Tennessee is lucky to have him.

William Carter Posted 11 months ago

Mr. Calvin is a big positive force in our school. He inspires the students to give their best at whatever it is they are doing. His students’ broadcast productions are top-notch. They are the best I have seen in any school.

Tamela Story Posted 11 months ago

I actually had the pleasure of meeting Mr Calvin's wife, who was gracious enough to allow me the opportunity to discuss on national TV the importance of sexual abuse awareness and prevention. Tamela has been such a angle in human form and has always supported the efforts of Storys SAFEhaven. I knew of her husband because Mrs Calvin always mentioned how he would motivate and inspire her to end. That his passion for helping people is like non other. This is was several years ago. Reading the comments below is proof of his kind ways. I don't believe that there is anyone more deserving of this honor.

Gregory kowalski Posted 11 months ago

Though I had many great teachers he was one of the best taught different in every aspect was a really hands on approach teacher and could always motivate me to try harder in other classes I’m now looking at pursuing business opportunities because of him he’s one of the best teachers a student especially in high school could have and this equipment would be a very important necessity to boost his ability to teach his broadcasting class and stimulate the minds of his students

Quinton Harrison Posted 11 months ago

There aren't enough words to express how Mr. Calvin has changed my life for the better. I met him through brief encounters in the hallways of Millington Central High my Sophomore year. I had always heard good stories about him through the broadcasting class students and friends of said students. I was interested in the class be cause of my background in technology and I thought it would be a good change of pace in the mundane classes I took while in High school. I was trying to get into his class for over a year when I finally managed to get his class on my schedule my Senior year of high school. At the time I got the class I just expected it to be a fun experience my last year, but it turned out to be so much more. Mr. Calvin has been, and always will be a life long mentor to me. During my Senior year my mother's health took a turn for the worse and I honestly was going through the motions every day in school, but he somehow managed to pick up on what I was even able to hide from family. He got me through the year with his constant encouragement, advice, and going out of his way to make sure I had someone to talk to even when I though I didn't need it. I currently have a job as an IT professional and I am positive I would not have striven for a career in IT as aggressively as I have without Mr. Calvin's support. He helped me network and open doors I never would have guessed were available to me, and treated me like I was one of his own. I owe a huge debt to Mr. Calvin that I could spend a lifetime trying to repay. He goes above and beyond for all of his students in and outside of school. I graduated over 4 years ago and I still keep in contact with him and his family. He strives to make every child he is in contact with a better person and open their eyes to the world of possibilities they have at their disposal. He works with anyone who tries their best, and even pushes those who don't just so they can reach their potential. I am honored and blessed to be where I am today because of Marshonn Calvin's influence. He has, in no small part, made me a better man, a better person, and a better human being. He has earned this award 1,000 times over, and I am confident he will continue to change the lives of future young men and women for the better. God bless you Marshonn Calvin. I look up to you like a father, learn from you as student and mentor, and love you like a brother.

Marshonn S. Calvin, Sr. Posted 11 months ago

As an instructor at Millington Central High School, I am highly committed to the educational advancement of students enrolled in the Broadcasting Program. Millington Central High School is a Title I school, which means it has a certain number of economically disadvantaged students. Many of my students come from low-income communities; dysfunctional families; have learning disabilities and deal with low-self esteem issues. This award will allow me to purchase equipment that will help aid in motivating my broadcasting students to strive for excellence in the broadcast journalism and the film industries. Many of the student’s families in the communities of Memphis and Millington, TN cannot afford to financially support a broadcasting program such as this one and we are in need of help from the public who believe in helping my broadcasting students with their educational endeavors. Having an opportunity to win a prestigious award such as this one will allow my students to get the video production equipment they stand in need of such as: Apple iMac Pro Computers, Video Production Cameras, Tripods and Editing Software. I truly care about all of my broadcasting students both past and present becoming productive citizens, and rising above circumstances to reach out to help society through their work in the broadcast journalism and the film industries. I would like to express our appreciation to everyone who support the work that my students and I do in the Millington Central High School Broadcasting Program and for The Trojan TV Show. I appreciate everyone for the wonderful messages, encouraging words and support you have given to me, my beautiful wife Tamela, my amazing mother Joyce, my former student Jessica Tackett who nominated me for this award and to all of my broadcasting students both past and present regarding this prestigious honor. May you all continue to be blessed for everything you do to support future leaders like the broadcasting students that I teach and mentor everyday at MCHS. Kindest Regards, Marshonn S. Calvin, Sr.

Makeisha Frazier Posted 11 months ago

For me Mr. Calvin represents the ideal leader and mentor. He has helped so many students propel in life , he not only cares about each individual student education and all of us being successful in life but he also wanted us to be our best no matter what. Mr.Calvin has spread his knowledge and his love through each of his students. I had the privilege to be part of the beginning stages of the studio (his creation), I watched his ideas transform into reality! I learned so much about journalism and communications while under his wing.I am able to utilize those skills now and forever more, I am truly blessed from the entire experience. I will never forget how We got to meet the News crew at Action News 5 in Memphis and how we also got to show off our work and compete in contest. He strongly wanted us to succeed... he put every ounce of effort into the program and into his students. Mr.Calvin serves to me as a Mentor and father figure, he’s just that for many of us. He would be perfect for this award because he has embraced so many of us and changed our lives for the better. Thank you Mr.Calvin for believing in all of us!

Steven Howery Posted 12 months ago

I've know Marshonn Calvin for over 3 decades. We both grew up in Kankakee, IL and I honestly can't recall the when or how I met him. I can tell you that he's always been a positive, stand-up young man who has clearly carried that through to adult hood. When I read about the impact he's making, I'm not at all surprised. I'm proud of how far he's come and the man he's come to be. This nomination is well-deserved and I'm sure he will use it as a catalyst to drive an even greater impact in his community. Well done, Marshonn. Bravo!

William Johnson Posted 12 months ago

I definitely support this nomination for an outstanding family man, broadcaster, and educator. I have known Marshonn for 25 years dating back to our time as Broadcast Journalism majors at Rust College. Over this time I have watched Marshonn blossom into a great Broadcast Journalist/Filmaker both professionally and educationally. I have followed the brilliant work from he and his students, and listen to testimonials these young men and women have shared on how Mr. Calvin helped change their lives in a positive way. Marshonn balances his time of being an educator and outstanding family man well. The importance of education has always been a top priority which is why Mr. Calvin is well deserving of this nomination and the award that follows. Congratulations my friend the best has yet to come.

Roger Faulkner Posted 12 months ago

Mr. Calvin is the definition of a family man. Since our days at Rust College, he has been a shining example of fatherhood. In addition, his work in education is second to none. He has worked countless hours with a diverse group of students to ensure that they are equipped with skills needed to be college and career ready.

Cole Posted 12 months ago

Kenyatta Hart Posted 12 months ago

Mr.Calvin is a one of a kind teacher that you'll never have in your life again. He has a wonderful impact in most of his students lives by leading us on the right path and just being honest and open minded about any situation, so i say this opportunity will be very well deserved.

Quametra Wilborn Posted 12 months ago

Mr. Calvin was one of the biggest influencers in my life. When i joined his class by complete accident my 9th grade year, no way did i ever think that I'd be where i am now in my life. He helped me see my potential and strengths when nobody really cared to. I joined his class at a time when i didn't know what my purpose was or where i belonged coming into high school. I wanted to try to figure out what i wanted to do with my life. That's when he opened my eyes to journalist, broadcast that is. I always hated the news growing but the more we did interviews and news shows in class, the more i grew to like it. He pushed me to see my potential. I would spend hours after school and even skipped lunch and study hall to learn more. Soon, he became more than JUST a teacher, but a father figure to me and those around me. We became a family. He provided guidance and offered life long lessons with no judgement. He was tough on us and wasnt afraid to tell it like it is, but we knew it was because he was one of the only teachers that actually cared. He didn't stop believing in us, even when we stopped believing in ourselves. We were a family. To this day, i still speak to mr. Calvin as I'm 5 months into my career as a television reporter. Nobody saw that but him. I dont know much about this award or how any of this works but I wish you the best and i hope the consider you for the Life Changer of the year award. Thank you.

Tyshaun Owens Posted 12 months ago

Mr. Calvin wears the hat of a teacher, but he is more than just an educator. I am a former student of his and I can say his job continues well after the school bell rings. I can recall countless amounts of days he stayed after school helping students and mentoring them as well. When ever you needed a ear to listen or a shoulder to lean on he was always the teacher to call on. A lot of students will say the same thing, he’s one of the driving factors behind my success. Offering advice when you needed it, he never closed his door to a single kid. A lot of students weren’t students of his but that still didn’t stop him from extending a helping hand to who ever needed it. His heart speaks volumes, he’s truly deserves every blessing that’s coming his way. I always wondered did he have 28 hours in his day because the time he spent pumping life into us combined with the time he spent raising his own family just didn’t add up! As a high school sophomore, planning for the future was the last thing on my mind. I had no one to speak to about college or life after high school until I met Mr. Calvin. Even after high school, I would still pay him visits just to get advice on certain things. I’m sure like myself, a lot of other people had the same experiences with Mr. Calvin because he’s always been that type of person. He has always put the needs of others before his own and often times he would settle for less just so we could have more!

Tausean Holmes Posted 12 months ago

Mr. Calvin ous probably the biggest reason I went to college. After taking his class in my earlier years at school I thought his class was boring and decided to withdraw because I didn't understand it. He tried to persuade me into coming back but I felt that class wasn't for me until I started talking to close friends that were involved with him and I started to get a different perspective about the class then. All of a sudden I stayed finding myself back in his classroom in and out visiting and watching the other classes have fun. Mr. Calvin would do noir then teach he would five us life lessons and tell us stories about his past to let us know that he can relate. As a student-athlete I was needing game film to give to school so I can get a scholarship but I didn't know where to get it from. My coaches told me you Don't worry about it but I was very much concerned because I knew that would play a big part in my recruiting and going too college. Well during my junior year he sat me down and I let him know my concern and he extended another offer that I accepted to come back to his class my senior year. As my last year comes around I found myself working on my highlight tape every day during and after school. He taught me about editing the video, render the tapes on to the computer, and putting on cool transitions through it. I started to send them out to different schools after the season but wouldn't here a answer back from them. Until coaches started coming to the school wanting to visit me personally and they would ask for my highlight tape so I would always bring to his class, if I didn't have none on me, and create a copy. I offered 10+ scholarships since teams were able to watch me play that couldn't all because Mr. Calvin showed me the ENDLESS OPPORTUNITIES that his program offers and I'm very thankful for him for that. I would always give Mr. Calvin credit when people asked would made me go to school sometimes more then I would my coaches. So now I have a little cousin who is in his program and is enjoying it so far. Thanks Mr. Calvin for everything you have done for me and I couldn't think of a better person for this award other than him!

Dr. Tara R. Campbell Posted 12 months ago

I am the new program manager for Digital Arts and Audio/Visual Technologies for the state of TN. Before I even began that role, Mr. Calvin had reached out to me and shared resources that could be passed along to other Arts and A/V teachers across the state. Upon vetting what he shared, there was no doubt this man gives his all to his profession, his students, and his colleagues. Career and technical education is better in TN simply because Mr. Calvin is a part of it. He gets my vote 100 times over.

Andrew Douglas Posted 12 months ago

Marshonn is an exceptional leader and mentor to his students. He cares about their careers and goals after graduation, but more importantly he cares about them on a personal level. My interaction with Marshonn and his students is at WMC Action News 5. Every year he brings his class of students to our NBC affiliate to help them get an idea of what a career in broadcasting is like first hand. As a morning news anchor I notice his students are well-informed, engaged and often times they are doing interviews with us that air on the school's news program. On this field trip he gives students what I always craved at school: real life experiences outside of the classroom. He organizes the trip, reaches out to some of us to make sure we are available for the students and makes sure the class gets the full hands on experience that includes watching a newscast air in real time. His dedication is 100 % to his students and their education. He is well-deserving of this honor and recognition.

Memories of Marshonn from our time together at WMC-TV Action News 5! He is a thoughtful and gifted leader. He was the kind of co-worker who saw something that needed to be done and took care of it, not looking for praise or recognition. He is a wonderful teacher who often brought his classes to 1960 Union and you could see the excitement that the young people shared with their mentor, Marshonn. He understands technology and brings a positive passion to everything he tackles. I am grateful for his friendship.

The students at Millington Central are lucky to have a teacher as dedicated as Marshonn Calvin. I spent many years working with him at WMC. As the producer of various newscasts there, I never had to worry about the technical aspects of my newscasts because of his dedication. Since his move to the classroom, I've had the chance to speak to his students on a number of occasions. He's found a way to inspire students and hold their attention in a world where smartphones and connected devices are rapidly changing the landscape. Many nights I've called him to find that he's not at home, but still in the classroom working on student projects or at a school function where he's helping students get more hands-on experience.

Marshonn Calvin will pour everything he learned into his students and If he don’t know it he will look it up to find out or take the students on a field trip to gather more information. Calvin will go above and beyond the office time to make sure his students gain the experience they need to be successful. Memphis an surrounding schools need more teachers like Marshonn Calvin.

Me and other student's was begging mr.calvin to go to the hospital he said and I quote " i'll go to the hospital when the show's finshed "at that moment I realized, how important we really were to him Mr.calvin is the most respected,honest, and noble man I know and wouldn't think twice about giving his last to one of his student and that's why I look up to him and made him my mentor. Mr.calvin is already talking about putting the prize money from this award in the program at our school.

Sherry Lane Posted 12 months ago

I owe nothing but gratitude to Mr Calvin. It was God's will for us to meet that 1st day of school at MCHS. My son Christian took his program all 4 yrs of high school. I told Mr Calvin it might be difficult but he stated that with God all things are possible. He was patient, kind, loving and treated all of his students equally. He never have up on my son. My son came out of high school and produced our church commercial which aired on local TV stations. That is LIFE CHANGING!!! HE IS a mentor & a role model at the highest level. A man who practices his christian beliefs. He is the true definition of a LIFECHANGER and Noone deserves it more. Sherry Lane

Vicki Everett Posted 12 months ago

I have had the privilege of knowing Marshonn Calvin and his family for over 17 years. His wife, Tamela and I have worked together for over 17 years. They have been a blessing to my family and I. I have seen Marhonn rise to challenges in his life and career with a positive and determined mind-set, purservering even through some very difficult challenges, while still accomplishing outstanding achievements where he has been publically recognized; additionally, shining a bright light and bringing recognition to Millington Central High School and the Memphis Area, through many awards he and his students have won. Because of Marshonn's desire is not only to teach the students; but to encourage, lend a helping hand, mentor, train, lead, to help prepare them for a career to be able to "succeed in their lives", numerous students lives have been empacted. Many of his student have attested to the fact that it was because of Mr. Calvin's impact on their lives, they have graduated, gone to college and have successful careers and "Yes,"he is absolutely a "life changer." Marshonn Calvin should definitely receive "Life Changer of the Year Award!"

I am a fellow teacher of Mr. Calvin at Millington Central High School. I am witness of his tireless efforts to help better each student he comes in contact with at MCHS.

Mr. Calvin does an awesome job with MCHS's Broadcasting program. His standards are high and the students are willing to meet those standards in order to be a part of his class/program. Oftentimes, the students stay after school countless hours to work on interviews, stories, filming etc. and they love it. Each week his students create and produce Trojan T.V., which is always a hit because it touches on the interests of the students and school while connecting all of it to the news, society, and the world. Mr. Calvin is a class act and so many of his students are following in his footsteps! He deserves this honor!

Heather Bosi Posted 12 months ago

Marshonn Calvin deserves this award. As a former student, I believe that he's gone above and beyond, not only for those who have taken his class but outside as well. When students lack a direction, he's there to help them find their way. When students lack the confidence, he helps them shine. When students are dealing with life struggles, he lends them an ear and reminds them that someone cares. The patience and understanding he shows has no bounds. He truly inside his heart wants to help make a difference in the lives of his students. And it's not just about being someone they can turn to, but Marshonn Calvin also holds them accountable for their actions with a 'tough love' approach. Its not about getting onto them for waiting last second to turn in their work, but about teaching them why time management is a necessity to survive as an adult. He extends his hours, dedicating his time to the students to make sure they have every opportunity to succeed. The possibilities in this life are endless and if anyone deserves the LifeChanger of the Year award for impacting their students lives, it should be Marshonn Calvin.

Mr. Calvin most definitely deserves this award. As a former student of his, I can truly say that he has positively influenced me throughout my high school career and even into my professional career. He is a man of good moral character, passion, honesty, and so much more. Mr. Calvin was a father that I was never able to have and I am surely grateful that people like him exist. He surely does teach his students the content of his classes as well as how to prepare for the real world. He's given me opportunities that I otherwise would've never had in high school such as attending trips to learn how to edit and compose online videos among other things. He is truly a blessing towards anyone that he comes into contact with. Good luck to you Mr. Calvin.!

Princess Daniels Posted 12 months ago

From day one of my high school career Mr. Calvin was one of my go-to people and one of my supporters! He is extremely knowledgeable in his field and he is there for every student that walks into that classroom on the first day of school. My freshman year was 2010 and he is STILL. A supporter of mine and is still there when I need him to be. He always has great advice and always wants the absolute best for his students. He does what he can to get his students on trips to “real-world” broadcasting stations. He gives his students on hands learning and experience. Mr. Calvin is one of the best teachers I have had! He is most definitely worthy of this award!

I’ve known Mr. Calvin for over 20 years! He is a man of integrity and has a heart to serve our children. He’s always gone above and beyond to mentor them, feed them, and counsel them. He’s spent his summer vacation taking students on job interviews helping with job applications. He’s truly 1 in a Million!

William Thomason Posted over a year ago

When I first met Mr. Calvin he instantly became an inspiration to me. He is unlike any other teacher I have ever met. He doesn’t do his job for the money or the recognition but instead for his students. He reminds us that not matter your race, age, background or history you can do anything you set your mind to. He never tells anyone that they can’t do anything but instead everything that he or she has a passion for. He encourages us to go above and beyond and to never stop. Mr. Calvin reminds me of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. he tells us to not hold back and to give it all we have. He is peaceful and calm like Dr. King but yet he is powerful in his speech and his beliefs. And he is just as much of an encouragement and a leader as Dr. King. He has change others lives and influenced a change in not only our community but also in the hearts and minds of his students. He has personally changed my life in ways no one could ever understand all for the better.

I wouldn’t found my love and passion of filmmaking. He elevated my craft and encoureged me never to give up on my dreams and I could never show the amount of appreciation I have. When I went through the lost of my dad he came in and never gave up on me and got on me to do better and helped used the show and that broadcasting program to help me cope. Through that I had so many doors open for me and actually found what God has called me to do. He not only deserves this but he deserves every blessing he has in stored for him for the sacrifices and dedication he had for his students and the program.
