A life of serving others has provided David Reed’s path to the Hall of Fame.

A masters degree graduate of SUNY College at Fredonia, Dave began his teaching career at Lincoln Charter School in Lincolnton, North Carolina in 2005.

In 2012 he moved on to Kings Mountain Intermediate School.

Despite his youth, Dave garnered the local Teacher of the Year Award in 2014, following that up with earning that distinction in 2016 for the entire county. This opened the door to attendance at the highly selective Ron Clark  Academy in Atlanta, Georgia.

Dave also initiated the nationally- recognized All-Pro Dads program in Kings Mountain, taking the  enrollment from 30 participants in its first year to over 200.

Dave also gives to his community by participating in the Carolina Panthers’ Black and Blue Crew entertainment squad and the Charlotte Hornets’ Swarm Squad.

Dave embodies the motto, "I touch the future, I teach."
