Team G.R.E.A.T. is intended as a fun way to reinforce the messages of the G.R.E.A.T. curriculum, using a superhero comic book format in a futuristic setting. Officer Greg Granderson of the Clarksville, Tennessee, Police Department decided to combine his desire to inspire and motivate children and youth through the G.R.E.A.T. Program with his lifelong love of superhero comic books. The result is his own comic book series honoring the real-life heroes who give their time, energy, and commitment on a regular basis to teach children and youth how to make good choices and become productive members of their communities.
Team G.R.E.A.T. is entirely the creation of Officer Granderson, who spent many hours designing and developing this graphic story. The G.R.E.A.T. Program applauds Officer Granderson for his creativity, perseverance, and dedication to improving the lives of children and youth.
