DEKALB COUNTY, GA (September 10, 2013) — Woodward Elementary School on Curtis Drive in DeKalb County had a very special visitor today.  Atlanta Falcon Sean Weatherspoon stopped by to speak with 5th graders about leadership. Weatherspoon’s  Spoonful of Hope Foundation partnered with Georgia United Credit Union and Star94 Radio for a successful school supply drive and today’s visit was in follow-up to the school supply donation made to Woodward in August.
