Support Woodrow Leave a comment

Woodrow Price was nominated by a member of the community, who wishes to remain anonymous.

Mr. Price has become a household name in the Vicksburg community. He is a selfless person who is always willing to help others. The nominator has known Mr. Price since he began working in the Vicksburg community in 2015. Since then, he has truly exemplified the characteristics of a LifeChanger. 

Prior to meeting Mr. Price, the nominator heard him speak to a group of young men about his life growing up in a single parent home. He shared his struggles as a student, and how failing 4th- 7th grade did not stop him from reaching his goals. Now, Mr. Price is a specialist in Educational Leadership. 

Throughout his career, Mr. Price has only worked in schools where there is a dire need of a male presence and influence. His ultimate goal is to make a difference in the lives of the children he encounters every day. Mr. Price initiated a program at his school called Sherman Beauties and Beaus. This program allows the students at his school to dress up on Tuesdays in an effort to build self-esteem.

Every year since 2015, he has implemented a Christmas campaign to collect donations for families in need. Mr. Price also started a Facebook Campaign for bike donations for his students. In 24 hours, he received a bike for each of his 30 students. In 2016, he created another Facebook campaign asking for scooters. He collected 150 scooters in one week, enough for the entire first-grade class. This year, Mr. Price organized a catered Thanksgiving dinner for the first-grade class to show students the importance of family. 

Mr. Price also serves as president of the Vicksburg-Warren Association of Educators and has assisted with hosting professional development workshops for teachers in the area of classroom management.

"Mr. Price serves as a highly sought-after leader in the Vicksburg community for his love of children," the nominator said. "He is so passionate about the things that he does. In 2017, he was recognized as Sherman Avenue Elementary's Teacher of the Year. If selected as LifeChanger of the Year, I know this title will be held by someone who will cherish it for a lifetime."

Mr. Price has been a wonderful example and role model for the kids at Sherman Avenue Elementary. We have been blessed to have him. I've worked with him for a few years and he always has the best interest of the children. It's all about the kids and what they need, not only in education but in life and at home. He had met needs of these kids that many never noticed but that's what he does. He doesn't do it for the glory or fame. He has a calling to be a teacher and answers to the Lord for what he does for the kids.

Woodrow Price is a dedicated teacher that I have admired for many years. He is definitely a life changer. He was instrumental in teaching how to read while doing a practicum at Alcorn State University. Many years, I served as Mr. Price assistant while working with Alcorn State University Saturday Science Academy. During that time, I gained even more respect for him and the field of education. He pours his all daily into the lives of children and adults. As a child he shared with me how he failed 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th grade and that didn't deter him from reaching his goal. Mr. Price is truly an agent of change.

Mr. Price is a teacher who is concerned not only with educating students, but also making sure that they feel loved and supported.

I met Mr. Price from one of my mentors, Dr. Elmira Ratliff. My first impression of Mr. Price was that he is passionate about students and their learning. Mr. Price makes every effort to make a difference in his students. His selfless acts has proven that he is the life changer of the year. When I met Mr. Price I didn't even know what size suit I wore lol or my rightful pants size. Mr. Price along with Dr. Elmira Ratliff took me on a shopping spree. They didn't have to do it but I'm so glad that they did. Me. Price has been a guiding light in my life and has imparted so much courage and hope into my life. I'm grateful to know him, I'm honored to be his mentee and I support him in all that he does. I know that it's great things getting ready to hit him. Continue to do the good work Mr. Price, we need more men like you taking up time for young men like my self.
