Site Director of the Month Recipient
Mr. Edward Grimes
Scott Lake Elementary
Mr. Edward Grimes has served as the 5000 Role Models of Excellence Project's Site Director at Scott Lake Elementary for the last two years. His main goal is to let the young boys know that they can be whatever they want to be in life by working hard with a sense of self-discipline, no matter where they come from.
Mr. Grimes has kept his chapter in constant meetings and strong engagement during the pandemic; they do virtual competitions and academic games focusing on current events that impact society. They have meaningful discussions about how and what happens to people when they make a particular decision in life. He also focuses on the brotherhood aspect of the 5000 Role Models of Excellence Project with teamwork and that holding everyone accountable and responsible is vital. Within his tutelage and direction, Mr. Grimes creates experiences that the young men can take with them and use for a lifetime.
During his tenure, he has involved his chapter in plays, talent shows, food drives, toy drives and Covid-19 donation relief efforts for their school’s surrounding community. He conducts tutoring for his chapter to ensure the boys maintain academic success during this global pandemic.
His favorite saying is: “Be Great!”
