Legacy Mi­ami high­lighted Gal­lon’s ef­forts and suc­cess as a life-long ed­u­ca­tor and his cham­pi­oning of causes in Mi­ami-Dade County Pub­lic Schools, such as ed­u­ca­tional eq­uity and ac­cess, ex­cep­tional stu­dent ed­u­ca­tion, in­creased teacher and em­ployee salaries, and fair and eq­ui­table op­por­tu­ni­ties for small, mi­nor­ity and lo­cal busi­nesses,

Gal­lon, who is also the Na­tional School Board As­so­ci­a­tion’s 2017 Ben­jamin Eli­jah Mays Award win­ner, was rec­og­nized and hon­ored for nearly 30 years of ser­vice to pub­lic ed­u­ca­tion as a teacher, prin­ci­pal, dis­trict ad­min­is­tra­tor, school su­per­in­ten­dent and school board mem­ber.
