The McKinney City Council recognized Melissa Ridge Intermediate student Bishop Curry at Tuesday night’s City Council meeting. McKinney Mayor Brian Loughmiller presented Curry and his family with an official proclamation naming Feb. 21, 2017 “Bishop Curry V Day”.
Curry, a 5th grade student at Melissa Ridge Intermediate and resident of McKinney, recently developed a child safety invention to help prevent hot car deaths. News of Bishop’s invention quickly gained the interest of local and national media.
The Bishop Curry V Day Proclamation states that “the City of McKinney wishes to recognizes [sic] the creativity and ingenuity of Bishop and his desire to make a difference and change lives.”
Curry’s mother, Tia Curry, shared the news of the proclamation with Melissa Schools administration Tuesday morning, along with her gratitude for Melissa Ridge Intermediate Principal Tami Hayes.
“Thanks for all of your support and encouragement of all your students in Melissa,” Mrs. Curry said. “Ms. Hayes we want to especially thank you for always listening to any of our concerns with an open mind and heart. You have been Bishop’s principal for his whole MISD student career and have been a support to our family.”
