The Man, The Myth, The Legend

Montgomery Junior High history teacher Dr. Meeker surprised by his coworkers

The 2021-2022 school year will be a special year for Dr. Meeker, as he will be retiring from education after 42 years in the classroom. Last Friday, the MJH history hall honored his 42nd year by wearing a commemorative shirt to show their appreciation for his years of service. “This is the sweetest thing that has ever happened to me as a teacher,” Dr. Meeker said. “My coworkers’ surprise today was so touching and really caught me off guard! I love being a Montgomery Bear!”

Montgomery JH Principal Mrs. Chapman was a 7th grade student in Dr. Meeker’s first Montgomery ISD classroom. “He has touched many lives in his 42 years of teaching and I was one of them,” Mrs. Chapman said. “He was not only my childhood teacher, but he has been my friend, coworker, and someone I respect dearly. His legacy will live on at MJH through his passion for teaching history and the impact he made with his students, our staff family, and the community.”
