Kroger Donates $250 Gift Cards for Teachers
Posted on 12/21/2020
On December 16, Superintendent Trent North made a visit to all 35 schools where he honored the Teachers of the Year with a $250 Kroger gift card to be used on behalf of their students or grade level. The cards are made possible by a donation from Kroger and the Douglas County Board of Education.

Through Kroger's Annual Teacher Supply Giveaway, 20 cards were given to the District. "We wanted these cards to benefit our Teachers of the Year," said Superintendent North. "To make sure all Teachers of the Year receive a card, the Board of Education funded 15 additional ones."
Nancy Gore-Scott with Kroger Corporate Affairs, Atlanta Division, said, “At Kroger our purpose is to feed the human spirit, and one of the many ways in which we bring this to life is through our annual Teacher Supply Giveaway. Kroger is proud to play a small part in supporting teachers in their big responsibility of educating the leaders of tomorrow.”

Superintendent North joined Ms. Gore-Scott in expressing appreciation. “This year has truly been like no other,” he said. “We give credit to our Teachers of the Year for helping maintain positive energy among their colleagues.”
