CCSD Middle School Science Teacher Serves the Powder Springs Community

Mr. Shannon Brings Service and Volunteerism to Tapp Middle School Science Students.

Congratulations to Mr. Alexander Shannon for being recognized as the November 2020 teacher spotlight! Shannon has been teaching for 24 years, and is currently the science department head at Tapp Middle School.

Recognized for his exemplary leadership skills and heart for service, Mr. Alexander is currently working on hosting the 3rd annual Salvation Army Can-A-Thon. Last year, he was able to work with his community to collect 3,000 cans to donate to the Salvation Army. This year, Shannon has raised his goal to 5,000 cans. Reaching this goal in just a month is no easy task, but he is confident that with the help of his community, it is possible. You can get involved by donating cans personally, donating money, or even by placing an online grocery store order, which will then be picked up by canathon volunteers. Another way to get involved is by using the hashtag #wecantogether to raise awareness over social media. For more information, you can contact Mr. Shannon at

When asked about his devotion to serving his community, Shannon states that “you have to make an investment in people, not in order to get something out of it, but out of love, selflessness, and service.” He truly loves his community at Tapp and in Powder Springs, and believes that it is his duty to give back to such a loving and caring place. Alexander Shannon is an amazing role model for students and peers alike, and is a clear example of a leader with a heart for service. Thank you Mr. Shannon for all of your hard work and dedication!
