FRO M T H E CHAMBER

Board Chairman OF THE GERMANTOWN AREA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND CHAMBER President

FROM THE

HELLO,

My name is Gary Yenser and I am honored to serve as the 2020 Chairman of the Germantown Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. When my family moved to Germantown in 2008, it quickly became evident to me that one of the distinguishing characteristics of Germantown is the extent–far greater than in other cities where we have lived–to which our citizens, local businesses and city government engage with each other and work together to chart a course for the continued growth of the city. That dynamic is one of the primary reasons our family chose to make Germantown our home and to start a business here. I have sought to live up to that high standard of engagement by being involved. I’ve completed the Leadership Germantown program, was a member of the Germantown Forward 2030 Vision Steering Committee and served on the boards of both the Germantown Chamber and the G ermantown Education Foundation. I intend to

bring that same energy and level of commitment to my term as Board Chairman.

GERMANTOWN FORWARD 2030 PLAN Janie Day and I support the Germantown forward 2030 Plan identifying economic development as a key performance area. The Germantown Chamber fills a vital role in support of this area by advocating for policies that attract new businesses and promote an environment where those businesses are successful, resilient and connected to the community. This connection is critical to ensuring that our economic success is defined not only by the tax dollars generated by our local businesses, money that contributes to the extraordinary levels of service, public safety, and education we enjoy in our city, but also by the degree to which that success embodies our rich city heritage and the vision we share as a community. A vision that honors the past, treasures the present and works to responsibly shape Germantown’s future.

OUR MISSION Community. Partnership. Growth. These are the key pillers of the Germantown Chamber of Commerce mission. I encourage you to share in that mission by suppor ting the growth of our local businesses, partnering with the Chamber as either a member or sponsor, or partnering with the City to serve the community through your participation on the many service opportunities available to you. And if you are new to the Mid-South I urge you to visit us in Germantown. I am confident that, much like my family discovered in 2008, you will see all the amazing things our city has to offer and consider making Germantown your home. Sincerely,

Gary Yenser Chairman of the Germantown Area Chamber of Commerce

FRO M T H E MAYOR

FROM THE

Mayor

DEAR NEIGHBORS, Let me first begin by wishing you a happy new year! I hope that the new year will be full of positivity for you and that you fully embrace the joys that life brings you. I speak on behalf of all City employees when I say that it has been a pleasure serving this community over the last year, and we’re looking forward to the year ahead. Germantown is truly an exceptional place to live and a community of choice in this region. This year has been nothing short of outstanding and we have an excellent future ahead of us. New residents are continuing to choose to move to our City for our top-tier schools, first-rate public safety and unparalleled quality of life. Our top performing Germantown Municipal School District (GMSD) continues to rank among the best in the state. This year, GMSD recorded the highest district average for ACT scores in the history of the state. In 2019, 86.2% of students scored a 21 or higher and the average score in the district was 26.3. I’d be remiss if I did not mention

the 550 little foxes who were welcomed through the doors of the new Forest Hill Elementary School in the fall. You will learn more about this modern day elementary school in the pages that follow. Public safety will remain a top priority in our community. The Germantown Fire Department recently received a new $859,539 custom built fire engine, which brings our engine fleet to a total of five. The result of extensive input from our firefighters, the new engine features a clean cab concept in an effort to reduce a firefighters exposure to carcinogens. It has a much narrower wheel base to better handle turns and also features a compressed air foam system. The G e rm a ntown Po lice D e p a r tm e nt welcomed Vader, an 18-month-old Belgian Malinois and German Shepard mix to the force. GPD now has a total of three dual purpose K-9 officers that specialize in drug detection, as well as criminal apprehension and tracking. Perhaps the capstone of this marvelous year was the City’s historic achievement in earning the Malcolm Baldrige National

Quality Award. Germantown is one of only four municipalities nationwide to have ever received this award. The award is the highest level of recognition for performance excellence that a U.S. organization can ever receive and sets Germantown apart as “world-class.” This feat would not be possible without the hard work of our dedicated City employees and the visionary leadership provided by City Administrator Patrick Lawton. Residents reap the benefits each and everyday through the excellent services that the City provides, whether it be our rapid public safety response times, our ISO Level 1 rating, our strong tax base or our dual AAA bond rating, just to name a few. I hope you take the time to read the stories featured in this publication. These stories are just a taste of what makes our community so unique and special.

SMALL BUSINESS OF

The Year

The Optical Boutique In Germantown, The Optical Boutique of Dr Steven R Shum is a stand-out among other optometry practices. In today's eye care industry, the trend is toward quick eye exams. As a privately-owned optometry business, the doctors at The Optical Boutique focus on developing relationships with people while providing a much higher level of eye health and eye care needs. According to Dr. Shum, he and his colleagues Dr. Andrew Shum and Dr. Eleanor Null spend extra time with patients, asking questions and developing personal relationships with them. Wife, mom and business manager Brister Shum and a dedicated staff also focus on fostering relationships with each patient to provide personalized attention and care. This special commitment to care is one of the reasons The Optical Boutique was awarded the 2020 Small Business of the Year by the Germantown Area Chamber of Commerce. Dr. Steve Shum knew at an early age that he wanted to own his own optometry business, and he kept that vision in mind throughout his college and military career.

Germantown Magazine

He knew he wanted to be an optometrist at the age of 16, eventually graduating from medical school and serving as an Air Force optometrist for two years. In 1975, he opened his own optometry practice in Germantown, what was then a small community of 3,000 residents. Dr. Shum describes how, in the early days of his practice, he served as a volunteer firefighter for the growing city of Germantown, and he realizes “how important it is to give back to the community in which you do business.” As a result, the practice is connected to and serves with several community service groups: Lion’s Club of Germantown, Pass It On, InfantSee, SeeToLearn, Project 20/20, Southern Reins Center for Equine Assisted Therapy, Race for the Cure, Bowling for Sight, Wine for Sight, The Eyeball, Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation, Ali’s Way and Dorothy Day House. He differentiates his practice with added value and better equipment, but in the end, it’s all about relationships. “The onset of corporate optometry (eye doctors in large chain stores) had a significant impact on private practice optometry,” Dr. Shum says. “We treated patients like family and developed long term relationships with them,” he says. “This philosophy has been successful and formed the cornerstone of our business culture.” By Lori Philley Photography By Shannon Lenoir

LARGE BUSINESS OF

The Year

Crye-Leike Realty Crye-Leike Realty has been a staple of the Germantown business landscape for nearly 34 years. But when Harold Crye came to Memphis from his small hometown in Arkansas in the mid1970s, he didn’t know that real estate as a career was even a possibility.

“Germantown has been important in the overall strategy in Memphis," he says. “Low taxes, good schools, safety, walkable neighborhoods, and multiple parks brings a good quality of life for residents. Germantown stands out for all those good reasons.”

At the time, future co-founder Dick Leike worked for Dairy Queen. When Crye and Leike became coworkers at another real estate agency, they realized they worked well together, eventually leaving and starting Crye-Leike Realty in 1977. The rest, as they say, is history.

Another attractive aspect is the city government’s approach to development.

In discussing their long history of success in home buying and selling, Leike describes responding to the rapidly changing real estate market as “being like a fighter and being fast on your feet,” while Crye describes flexibility as important in changing with the times and technology. The company has grown along with the city, seeing an original office of approximately 15 agents grow to now over 600 in the Memphis metro area – with 150 of those agents working in two Germantown offices. According to Steve Brown, President of Residential Sales for Crye-Leike Realty in Germantown, while the company operates 16 offices throughout the Memphis metro area, both of its founders lived – and still own property – in Germantown. At the time the Germantown office was opened in 1986, the town was still considered suburban, Brown says. But the business was immediately successful, and over the years management has stayed the same for the most part.

Germantown Magazine

“Germantown is very cooperative,” Brown says. “The climate for business is good. Now that there is starting to be a shortage of space for building, land is at a premium. They are being careful stewards of what’s left.” Brown has been with Crye-Leike since 1980 and says the founders, Harold Crye and Dick Leike, are like big brothers to him. “They are men of sterling character. Their reputation precedes them.” Brown says. “They’re very grounded, common sense type guys, but they’re also very innovative.” When asked about what attributed to Crye-Leike winning Germantown’s Large Business of the Year Award, Brown says, “Our core values help create the company we have. Those things like integrity first, being a full-service company distinguishes us from our competitors. We’ve got property management, insurance, mortgage, title, all of those things. Our clients like this. It’s reliable, convenient and efficient. “ “Being a good neighbor is part of our philosophy and core values,” Brown says, “Winning an award like this is quite an honor.”

NONPROFIT OF

The Year

Madonna Learning Center It’s entirely possible you’ve driven by the Madonna Learning Center on Poplar Avenue and not known about the special work that goes on every day behind its doors. But the families of students with rare genetic disorders such as down syndrome, autism and cerebral palsy would be happy to fill you in. Madonna Learning Center just celebrated 50 years as the metro area’s only independent, faith-based educational option for students who need the loving, caring environment only it can provide. That’s why Madonna Learning Center is a clear choice as the Germantown Area Chamber of Commerce’s (GACC) Non-Profit of the Year. In 1969, Memphis firefighter Bob Winfield wanted specialized education for his son who was visually, hearing and speech impaired. But with no such school in the Memphis area, he enlisted Sister Mary Mark Graf to move from Evansville, Indiana, to Memphis and open Madonna Day School inside St. Peter’s Home for Children in Midtown. According to Director Jo Gilbert, there’s been a lot of changes since the school’s first class of 24 students. When the school moved to Germantown in 1996, it became the Madonna Learning Center. And in 2015, the school was rebuilt and transformed into the state-of-the-art campus it is today, serving 82 students. The motto, “Together, We Can” may be an understatement. Madonna Learning Center now serves students starting at the age of four and into adulthood. The lower school program offers traditional education in reading, math, science and social studies

but also has specialized therapeutic services including speech and language, occupational therapy, movement, art, music and therapeutic physical education. After graduating from the school aged program, students can transition to the Monarch Day Program, where 42 adult students are now enrolled. They can participate in three different levels of study focusing on daily living skills, social skills and job preparation. Gilbert says the Germantown community has been very supportive in hiring many of the young adults in the program. “These jobs give students purpose as they age and they gain useful experiences and become more independent,” she says. Gilbert is proud of Madonna’s staff of 36 working hard each day to help students overcome their challenges and get ready for life. “From the teachers, teacher assistants, therapists, specialists and administration, each student is loved and appreciated for who they are,” Gilbert says. “Each one goes above and beyond to help students reach their fullest potential. They are such believers in the school’s mission and work very hard to fulfill its goals for the students and their families. They are the most loving and amazing group.” Gilbert says recognition as GACC’s Non-Profit of the Year exemplifies the tremendous support the Madonna Learning Center enjoys by virtue of being in Germantown. “We appreciate the embrace the community gives us,” she says. “It allows our students to fulfill their dreams and feel accepted. I can’t express to everyone how much that means to our teachers, students and their families.” By Kristi Ransom Photography by Alex Ginsburg Photographics

a safe place to School Resource Officers build trust and respect in Germantown schools Protector. Educator. Counselor. The School Resource Officer serving neighborhood schools has a broad job description. These police officers not only work to maintain safe and secure campuses, they devote much of their time to teaching and guiding youth. “It takes a special officer to get immersed in the school community and be a part of its family and culture,” says Lieutenant Kevin Simpson with Germantown Police Department. Along with participating in Movie Night and events honoring grandparents,“Officers work with safety and emergency planning, crisis intervention, discipline issues at school and with the police in the community.”

HOMETOWN HEROS

DS SSING GUAR SCHOOL CRO Along with SROs, School Crossing Guards who assist pedestrians in school zones and control vehicular traffic are vital to student safety. “They engage our students, and the children grow to love and respect the crossing guards that they interact with,” says Germantown Police Lieutenant Kevin Simpson. “They speak to students by name and even talk to them about things that are going on in their lives. I believe I can speak for all of our crossing guards when I say that they view the kids as their own and they are willing to do everything they can to keep them safe.” Catherine Bland works as a School Crossing Guard at Germantown Elementary, Riverdale, and Houston High. “You don’t do this to become wealthy, but to give back to the community. I want all children to know that I see and value them. I may be the only smile a child sees on the way to school.”

“DAY TO DAY, YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THIS JOB.” - OFFICER MIKE MAGGIPINTO

Germantown Magazine

21


As he strolls hallways at Forest Hill Elementary School, Officer Mike Maggipinto stops to admire students’ colorful artwork and greets first-graders with an easy smile. On campus, his official title is School Resource Officer, but he’s affectionately known as “Officer Mike” to the 550 elementar students. “Most of the children and families get to know me and feel safe in coming to me if they have a problem,” he says.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE While serving in law enforcement, Officer Mike Maggipinto had worked on the SWAT team and served on community patrol. Those experiences as a member of the Germantown Police Department were rewarding. Still, he knew there was another career area to explore. Now a School Resource Officer in Germantown, he finds fulfillment in mentoring youth and supporting families. He has become an effective teacher and role model. “I remember a student whose father was in prison, and he had been taught that police officers are bad,” he says. With compassion, Maggipinto worked to gain his trust. If a student steals an item from a classmate, he uses the incident as a teachable moment. In the classroom, he teaches lessons on constitutional rights highlighting the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments. And last August, Maggipinto was recognized as SRO of the Month for his work in developing safety plans and traffic flow patterns for the new Forest Hill Elementary School. He also instructs on bike safety, gun safety, and how to stay safe online. “While at Disney World, a student was separated from her parents and remembered my advice to look for an employee wearing a uniform.” She found a staff member and was soon reunited with her parents. With two daughters at home, he appreciates relationships with his school family. “Day to day, you make a difference in this job,” he says.

FOSTERING COMMUNICATION For the past decade, School Resource Officer Orland Mack has helped Houston High School students navigate the challenging landscape of adolescence. Teens can benefit from a caring mentor, and they’ll find one in Mack. “I genuinely like children and working with them is my chosen path,” says the former social studies teacher. “There’s a need for police officers to improve their relationships with young people. I tell students that they can come to me with any problem. I know your name, but that doesn’t mean you’ve been in trouble.” The police badge pinned to his uniform could discourage open conversation, but he wants teenagers to meet a father and “regular person” who cares about their futures. He stays current on popular video games and has worked out with the football team. “When we connect with the little things, students trust me enough to talk about big things. Because of our positive relationship, they tend to listen to me more than to their parents.” Some students seek him out to report bullying, others share stressors in family life. Mack speaks frankly about the risks of vaping and using drugs and alcohol and works with counselors to provide perspective on the damaging consequences of sexual aggression and cyberbullying. He stresses that these years are a time to learn and grow, and he believes in the value of second chances. When parents and school staff work together, problems can be addressed. Recently a student discovered his own second chance. “This student had been in and out of trouble and was thinking about dropping out of school because his grades were bad. I advised him to talk to his teachers, be sincere, and tell them he was serious about turning it around.” Later when Mack learned that the student remained in school, he asked, “Why did you have a change of heart?” The student smiled and said, “It was because of our conversation. I did what you suggested, and the teachers helped me.” ■

ROOTED IN FOREST HILL ELEMENTARY: A MODERN SCHOOL

COLLABORATION By Candice Baxter Photography By Larry Kuzniewski

Germantown Magazine


CITY OF

GERMANTOWN INVESTS IN EDUCATION Not everyone sees all the costs associated with a school just by looking at a building. Besides the state mandated minimum requirement for annual maintenance, around $2.5 million last fiscal year, the City of Germantown also supports the Germantown Municipal School District (GMSD) with capital projects in two major ways: fixing the old and building the new. Once the Reaves property with a 400-year-old Oak tree standing guard over deer, rabbits and foxes, this land is now home to the Forest Hill Elementary foxes and the administration offices of the Germantown Municipal School District (GMSD). This brand new building is a crowning achievement and a long-lasting representation of the entire community coming together for the district’s first school built entirely from the ground up. The site was selected for functionality and inspiration. Parents, teachers and students formed committees to offer input. The result is the most modern, unique school in the Mid-South with architectural features and accents allowing for an instructional shift. “It’s really changed the way teachers teach and students learn,” says Jason Manuel, GMSD superintendent. Functional Inspiration Unlike an institutional structure with few windows, natural light is visible from almost anywhere in the building. Classrooms have floor-to-ceiling windows, sky lights in the hallways and one entire wall of the library is an open view of the courtyard. For safety, the campus has security cameras and two-part entrances which limit open access to students. With older children upstairs and younger ones downstairs, each hallway is color coded with bold accents and has a communal space with modular furniture and creative seating. “These spaces can be used for long-term activities like art and STEM,” says Manuel. Similar to reserving a conference room, teachers use these communal spaces for group projects. “Say they have a painting activity and then have to move into a math lesson, this way they don’t have to break everything down, clean up and then set it back up again later. These spaces are multifunctional.”

“There are five schools we inherited that were run by the Shelby County School System. With that we inherited a great deal of deferred maintenance,” says Assistant City Administrator Jason Huisman. The City has helped with the costs of upgrading the structures inside and out, from HVAC system updates to roof replacements and school security enhancements. Simultaneously, since its inception in 2014 the Germantown Municipal School District student population has grown by 28 percent. More students require more space. “GMSD has three main sources for capital. Funding from Shelby County has been inconsistent, the City has been the primary contributor to date, and the school district has been able to address many of their capital issues through their own budget,” says Huisman. The City pays down the bond debt for the 2016 addition at Riverdale and the cost related to the new construction of Forest Hill Elementary from the City's budget. In incremental investments made over the last five years, Germantown’s contribution to GMSD now exceeds $40 million. “The total amount the City has committed in this year’s budget is second only to the amount we invest in our police department,” says Huisman. Not included in that figure are indirect costs like employing School Resource Officers and crossing guards at each campus or widening Forest Hill Road to allow for sidewalks and increased traffic volume at the new elementary school.

Each spacious classroom has a built-in wall unit of linked rectangles of various size and depth, serving as both shelving

and art installation. Two giant scale wooden cabinets hold boxes for long-term storage. A technology safe houses student iPads and laptops, eliminating the bulky carts that take up teaching space. Fifteen sturdy double shelving units can be stacked. “It’s fun to see how teachers use them to divide the room into zones or line them along the walls,” says Kate Crowder, Communications Coordinator for GMSD and a former teacher.

“It’s really changed the way teachers teach and students learn.” - Jason Manuel, GMSD Superintendent

Every room has a set of dry erase surface pentagonal desks, shaped to fit together in various ways and encourage working in teams rather than lining individuals in rows. Each teacher’s desk rolls easily and has a detachable podium for shifting between lessons. On a large, colorful carpet, students gather on soft cylinders or toadstools. Instead of blackboards, touch-screen Promethean boards encourage interactive learning and have multiple touch points to engage more than one student at a time. Ms. Graham’s fourth-grade class uses it to highlight text and annotate summaries. To choose who answers the next question, she pulls up a spinning wheel that lands on a student’s name. Instead of chalk, the kids use one finger to draw and erase, solve math problems and trace routes on maps.


“Every time I come in here, I’m happy. We finished on a tight timeline, and it’s unlike anything we’ve ever built before.” - J osh Cathey, GMSD Chief of Operations

POSITIVE ENERGY THOUGHTFUL DETAILS The building has sustainable features like dimmable LED lighting throughout, which is energy efficient, eliminates the need to change bulbs and turns on and off by motion sensors. Marmoleum flooring, a durable bio-based linoleum, does not need to be stripped and waxed every summer. Water bottle filling stations keep tally and show students how many plastic bottles have been diverted from landfills. The deep stage in the cafeteria has large wings for props and lighting controlled from a back booth. For staging large group productions, a back hallway leads to the gym and restrooms. In addition to the sound proof paneled music room and full-court basketball gym with windows leveled to prevent the sun from blocking a good shot, the school also has a Zen garden and an outdoor classroom for lessons on sunny days. A sensory hallway with hopscotch blocks stretches past the special needs preschool class. Climbable seating is built into the walls near the bus loop where a second story overhang provides shelter from rain during dismissal.

Courtney Conoway, mother of two at the school, loves her experience thus far. “The energy has been really great. At the ribbon cutting ceremony, everyone wore fox-type costumes,” she says. A Germantown resident for eight years, she grew up in private school and continued the tradition with her kids until time for her youngest child to start kindergarten. When Forest Hill Elementary was completed, her kids enrolled and Conoway is pleased not only with the campus, but with the amount of parent involvement. “I wasn’t sure what that would look like, private versus public, and it’s been really good.” New resident Courtney Browning has a second-grader at Forest Hill Elementary, and her family recently moved from Lakeland. “We really like the largeness of the library, the playground is gorgeous and we like the GMSD offices being onsite. That’s a really unique feature.” Deputy Superintendent and Chief of Operations Josh Cathey has been involved in all aspects from site selection to meeting with contractors weekly since construction began in May 2018. “There are 572 items on the punch list to be done in the next six months, and we’re checking off one box at a time,” he says. Cathey is pleased with the facility’s progress. “Every time I come in here, I’m happy. We finished on a tight timeline, and it’s unlike anything we’ve ever built before.” The future will bring sidewalks, landscaping and a walking path around the pond, passing by the Oak tree that has stood for 400 years. It is steadfast proof of passing time in full view of 550 little Forest Hill foxes learning to work together in the modern age. ■ Germantown Magazine

MIKE MILLER IS LETTING IT

HOW A TWO-TIME NBA CHAMPION OPTED TO BUILD HIS EXPERIENTIAL SPORTS RESTAURANT IN GERMANTOWN Mike Miller already has a favorite spot in his new Germantown sports-themed restaurant: a booth in the back corner with a privacy wall and a line of sight to the front door. As the current Assistant Coach of the University of Memphis men’s basketball team, co-owner of a handful of BurgerFi franchises and the new Let It Fly restaurant concept, he’s here as much as his schedule will allow. And while his 6-foot, 8-inch height doesn’t quite make him anonymous (he’s a head above the half-walls that break up the space into different sections), the former Memphis Grizzlies player still enjoys walking around, interacting and greeting guests. Then, as always, he sneaks back to his booth, orders the fried chicken sliders (his favorite) and watches a game on the private 32-inch television. In October 2019, Miller opened Let It Fly at 9091 Poplar Avenue in Germantown. When deciding where to put the first of hopefully many locations, he wanted to start close to home. “Germantown is where my kids go to school,” Miller says. “It’s pretty much the bubble I’ve lived in. I play golf out here. I meet people for lunch out here. And I really wanted to create a place that brings people together, a place they can come and tell stories.”

Germantown Magazine

THE CONCEP T

On a weeknight in November 2018, he went out for beers with David Rodriquez, his business partner who oversees the operations of Miller’s thirteen BurgerFi locations. No stranger to the restaurant business, the two-time NBA Champion is also a franchisee of BurgerFi, a fast-casual chain in the “better burger” market, comparable to Shake Shack. Rodriquez had come in town to talk business, planning to open their 14th BurgerFi location in Germantown. They were sitting in a local sports bar, but from where they were seated, they couldn’t see a television. Turning to casual conversation, they realized there was a hole in the local market for a competing sports-themed concept. Miller started talking about the kind of place he would design – a fun atmosphere, golf simulator and various kinds of pubstyle slider sandwiches. The more they talked, the more Miller wanted to build it. Rodriquez questioned the timing of such an endeavor, as developing an original concept requires more dedication than opening an already established franchise.

“Y  OU’RE ONLY AS GOOD AS YOUR TEAM. IDEAS ARE GREAT, BUT EXECUTION IS KEY.” - MIKE MILLER

It took some convincing and 24 hours before Rodriquez called Miller and said, “Let’s do this.”

Miller lives 15 minutes away and drops in on his way in to coach the Tigers. Ironically, his favorite seat in the back corner booth was the one spot without a clear view of a television. All 27 of them are either obscured or angled overhead, so Rodriquez raised the privacy wall and had one mounted for Miller.

After scouting a handful of locations in the area, they landed on the former McAllister’s Deli space at Poplar Avenue and Forest Hill Irene Road. Rodriquez liked the spot for three main features: ample parking, target income and high traffic. Additionally, Miller knew of at least four golf courses within a few miles of their future sports bar concept.

Since its opening in October, Miller has been proud of Let It Fly’s success. “Germantown was the opportunity,” he says. “There’s not a whole lot of sports bars in the area, so this place is something I think the community not only wanted, but needed.” He appreciates the casual atmosphere where people can just be themselves.

THIS PLACE IS SOMETHING I THINK THE COMMUNITY NOT ONLY WANTED BUT NEEDED." - MIKE MILLER

THE DE VELOPMENT “The whole project took on a life of its own and changed from moment-to-moment based on Mike’s vision or operational decisions,” says Rodriquez. “Patience was key. We even waited a few weeks to open so we could get it just right.” From the front door, Miller can see his own inspirational quotes painted above the kitchen doors. Between them hangs a 20-foot graffiti mural of the Memphis city skyline. The ethos of the sports bar area is like stepping into an arena. The floors shine like a basketball court reflecting the score ticker of the Jumbotron centerpiece above the bar Miller spent hours branding with the Let It Fly logo. The walls are lined with photos from his personal collection. He chose the comfortable seating and paired down the menu. Along with traditional bar eats like sliders, wings and pizza, the menu also features entrees like chicken and waffles and barbeque by Melissa Cookston of Memphis Barbeque Company. “She’s been an absolute blessing,” says Miller, who at first did not even want to serve barbeque, out of respect. “But she’s a legend in the game.” Through a set of frosted doors lies the exclusive two-bay Full Swing Golf simulators. The bays can be reserved for up to four players for forty dollars an hour. Each bay is completely outfitted with clubs, or a locker to store your own and a personal caddy for service.

“The only thing I’d change,” Miller says with a smile, stretching out his expansive wingspan across the back of the booth. “Make it bigger.” ■

“It’s really hard to incorporate basketball hoops in a space like this, so golf is the adventure piece,” says Miller, whose swing was used to measure the spacious bays. Players can select from a variety of 83 courses, including Pebble Beach.

THE E XECUTION When it comes to running the restaurant, Miller admits his talents lie elsewhere. “You’re only as good as your team,” he says. “Ideas are great, but the execution is key. If I was an NBA GM, you hire the coach you feel like does the best at his job and you get out of his way.” The Let It Fly team is led by Rodriquez, the President and CEO, whose top priorities include food and service. He hired the best he knew in his three decades in the restaurant industry, all with over 20 years’ experience in their respective positions: Rickey Lesley in the kitchen, Shellie Kenton on service and J.R. Williss behind the bar. All the accents in Let It Fly are Tiger blue, from the court tape logo on each table to the swivel bar stools, but can be modified to suit other team colors. The goal is to eventually become a franchise with the concept replicated in other cities.

BEHIND THE

SWAT ZYZ

FOR THESE

HIGHLY TRAINED POLICE OFFICERS, SUCCESS

COME S THRO UGH

DISCIPLINE


T

When you consider local police protection, you’re likely to think of those officers who routinely patrol our neighborhoods or serve in schools. The SWAT team’s profile is less visible, but its work is vital in making Germantown a safer community. When this team gets a call, its operators are equipped to handle some of the most serious challenges in law enforcement. “We enjoy solving difficult problems,” says Captain Nick Godwin, a graduate of the FBI National Academy. “We provide resources and specialized expertise in resolving critical situations. We’re trained to handle a wide variety of emergency and non-emergency situations beyond a patrol officer’s role.” For Godwin, who has served with SWAT for 12 years, the appeal of this work is in persevering through risk while supported by a strong team. His 14 fellow officers are senior patrol officers or reserve police officers who volunteer to serve part-time on SWAT.

MULTIPLE TASKS AND RESPONSIBILITIES The SWAT team is called on to rescue hostages, resolve barricaded subject situations and serve high-risk warrants. The Quick Reaction Force is always on hand to provide security at the St. Jude Memphis Marathon and Germantown Charity Horse Show, as well as other large events in Shelby County. Officers also provide dignitary protection and several had the opportunity to protect former President Barack Obama when he visited the area several years ago.

SWAT has provided FBI sanctioned active shooter training to personnel at all GMSD schools, as well as other schools located in Germantown and the surrounding areas. “We train many people on how to stay safe and protect others so that there are leaders in the public who can assist in active shooter situations.” This is a productive team that works in diverse environments. SWAT officers have clocked 40 miles on the golf course in blazing temperatures while protecting golfers at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Recently, the team served a high-risk warrant to apprehend burglars who were responsible for several burglaries in Germantown, Memphis and Mississippi.

SUCCESS THROUGH DISCIPLINE What stands out in a SWAT officer? Start with the ability to think under stress, strong teamwork traits and willingness to take orders from anyone on the team as well as give them when needed. “Our success comes through discipline, and we’re extremely disciplined with our training, both tactically and physically.” Applicants must pass physical and firearms try-outs, a stringent psychological test and physical and stress testing. They complete DeSoto County SWAT School training before starting to “earn their snakes.” Godwin says, “You often hear our guys say you have to ‘earn your snakes,’ referring to the logo we wear. It’s an everyday process, and if any of us ever lose that mindset it’s time to turn the snakes in.”

Germantown Magazine

Operators volunteer much of their time that’s invested in training. They practice at the pistol range (94 percent shooting accuracy is required) and some serve as firearms instructors for the patrol division. Their skill level led to winning Mississippi Tactical Officers Association competitions in 2018 and 2017. “We’re all Type A personalities and former high school or college athletes,” says Lt. Davis Herndon. In fact, he and Godwin were college roommates who first bonded through their interests in team sports and law enforcement. Current members range in age from 23 to 39, and maintaining physical fitness is key to staying on the team. “There’s the shape you get in when you’re 22, and you’ll still have to pass the same trial process twice each year,” Godwin says. A big asset to the team is its K9 officer, a Belgian Malinois named Jinx. The 60-lb. canine aids in narcotics detection and can play a vital role in apprehension simply by being present at the scene. A trained K9 awaiting command is a tool that can push suspects to cooperate without use of more extreme measures. On a warm day under a clear sky, Jinx sits calmly with her handler Officer Sam Henderson. But like the SWAT members she assists, she will move to action when called on.

“I love being part of a team and something greater than myself ” – Lieutenant Davis Herndon


OUT OF MANY, ONE When an emergency arises, officers quickly strategize. Then they circle together to pray for the suspects, victims and one another. Herndon is acutely aware of job risks: in one incident, he was shot at 13 times. On another call, he was targeted with gunfire hours after learning that his wife was expecting a baby. “I need to be the best that I can, and we all need to be on our game physically, emotionally and mentally every day. I never want to have to tell a family member that one of our officers died while serving.” In his first year with SWAT, K9 handler Henderson has developed an appreciation for their professional and personal bonds. He says that one of their finest collaborations involved raising $10,000 for a team member who fought cancer. Their work is never trivial. Joining SWAT has “changed my sense of pride,” he says.

“We enjoy solving difficult problems”

Each operator receives a collection coin stamped with a number reflecting his place in history on the team’s timeline. While an individual’s contributions are honored, there’s more to share and remember in the SWAT story. So an extra stamp reads E Pluribus Unum meaning “out of many, one.” ■

After all the dreams come true in this Tony Award-winning Stephen Sondheim musical, everybody returns to the woods for a reality check. Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (of beanstalk fame) and Rapunzel get tangled up with a bevy of other fairytale characters and a few new ones created to add to the chaos and discover the unexpected consequences of having wishes come true. 2019 Inspiring Teacher Award recipient, Kell Christie will direct students in the production. Musical direction will be lead by Jason Eschhofen. Tickets may be purchased online at houstonhightheatre.weebly. com or at the door.
