MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Shelby County Schools (SCS) and the University of Memphis (UofM) are continuing their collaborative effort to create more teachers in the Mid-South.

The new University Middle School, located on UofM’s campus, is part of a special partnership that’s offering project-based hands-on learning for students and a chance for college students to gain experience as well.
