Billy Orgel’s Back! Listen on AM 640 Friday April 27

April 25, 2012

It’s show time again on Friday! Mark your calendar now to turn to AM  640 at 3:00 Friday afternoon to hear Part 2 of our interview with Billy Orgel, Chairman of the Shelby County Unified School Board.  We had a great time with Billy, who is open and straightforward.  (And a natural on the radio, though he confessed our show was his first ever radio interview. Remember us when you’re a star, Billy!)

Among other topics, we asked Billy about the qualities he wants to see in a candidate for the all-important Superintendent of (consolidated) Shelby County Schools. We also got his take on school vouchers and parental choice, and discussed some findings of the recent Yacoubian poll of suburban parents’ views on consolidation.

If you missed Part I of our interview (aired on March 23), you can listen right here:

Next week we’ll post Friday’s show, and announce an exclusive Back in River City feature to get you the answers you want about schools consolidation.

We are grateful, as always, to Don Tredway of Tredway Financial Group. Don’s generous sponsorship of Friday Viewpoint with Eddie Settles makes it possible for us to bring you into conversations to make a better Memphis.

Remember to join us on Friday, and pray for Memphis.
