William Blount High School's Skyler Renteria receives Turnaround Achievement Award

William Blount High School culinary arts teacher Marty Durand talks about how Skyler Renteria earned a Turnaround Achievement Award, during a Friday morning ceremony at the Capitol Theatre in Maryville. Because of earlier attendance problems Durand didn’t initially want to allow her into the second-level honors course. “I’m lucky that I didn’t turn my back on her,” he said.
