This year’s Allan C. Krulak Golden Shoe Honoree, Eric Gordon CEO, Cleveland Metropolitan School District, will be joined by 19 Action News Anchor George Smith for a candid interview about CMSD and its students. Eric Gordon was appointed Chief Executive Officer of the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) in June 2011 after having served as the district’s Chief Academic Officer for four years. Mr. Gordon, together with Cleveland’s mayor and other business, philanthropic, and educational leaders, successfully lobbied Ohio legislators in 2012 to pass The Cleveland Plan, a revolutionary package of education reform legislation that was signed into law on July 2, 2012. The Cleveland Plan has received national attention for its strong bipartisan support and unprecedented collaborative process that united the people of Cleveland around a collective mission to transform their public school system.

George Smith anchors the 4:30 and 5:30 p.m. news with Danielle Serino and reports for the 10 and 11 p.m. newscasts. He comes to 19 Action News after almost 10 years at ESPN. He has traveled to every state but Alaska. He loves to play basketball and enjoys cooking. He admits he's no Michael Symon.
