Many people often look for items that celebrities used in the past to collect or even sell them and make some money out of them.


Something similar happened to first-grader Marley Parker at Latta Elementary School in Ada, Oklahoma. She and her mother, Shelly Bryan Parker, noticed that one of her textbooks might have belonged to Blake Shelton.

According to Fox 2 Now, Marley cannot hide her excitement as she is using the same book that one of the best country music stars of recent times might have used when he was her age.

Shelly, who used to be a teacher, admitted to being embarrassed because her daughter will use the same book that 40-year-old people used when they were younger.


‘My daughter's teacher is an amazing educator, and I'm certain that if she had a way to obtain books that are not 40 years old, she would.’

Shelly Bryan Parker, CNN, April 6, 2018.

Her post became viral in no time and has been shared more than 7,000 times since it was published on April 4. Shelly’s intention was not to ‘brag’ about her daughter using a book Shelton used but to make people understand that things must change.

According to The National Education Association, Oklahoma ranks 47th among states and the District of Columbia in public school revenue per student and Oklahoma’s average teacher salaries rank 49th.


Shelly pointed out that, as a former educator, she realizes that the government must find a way to support in a better way the teachers and classrooms. As a mother, she admitted to being concerned for the education her daughter is getting.

Even though Shelton has not said anything about the book, it is very likely that it belonged to him as the Latta’s school district's superintendent, Cliff Johnson, confirmed that The Voice coach attended Latta Public School while he was younger.

He graduated from a different school, though, but the years he studied there matched with the years written next to his name.
