Our back to school giveaway contest is now closed!
Congratulations to Kelly Wright! Here’s the winning entry:
My favorite student is hard to pick, but I would have to go with Jasmine Davis. Jasmine was a full time collage student, double major and still worked 40 hours a week + and always had a smile on her face. She never complained about her studies or work and was always willing to go the extra mile for anyone. She is a true inspiration and I am proud to say that I know her. She has deeply impacted my life!
We were touched and inspired about your comments on teachers who inspired you. We have been very fortunate to receive extra donations and we would like to share those gifts to you! A few additional people have been chosen to receive these additional gifts and will be notified by e-mail. Have a great 2016 school year!
