*Comedian Steve Harvey, who’s found new lives as a morning radio show host (The Steve Harvey Morning Show), TV show host (Family Feud) and author (Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man), now has a new designation to add to the list: school principal — at least for one day.
The Birmingham News reports that students at Phillips Academy in Birmingham, Alabama will be giving props to Principal Harvey this coming Thursday … this after the school won a contest sponsored by Harvey’s morning radio show and General Mills.
Angela Strozier, the mother of an eighth-grader at Phillips Academy, entered the contest by submitting an essay about the school’s success. In it, she described how the deadly tornado outbreak in Alabama last April had affected many Phillips students.
Harvey said in a statement that he was impressed by the school’s “strong parental and community involvement.”
