Letter: Foundation’s annual breakfast

To the editor:

On June 12, the Vance County Public School Foundation will hold its seventh annual Honor an Educator Breakfast. Buying a $15 ticket to the breakfast allows you to honor a retired or active educator whom you admire and also help support the Foundation.

The Vance County Public School Foundation is a non-profit organization devoted to helping improve education in the public schools of Vance County. It has promoted the successful development of our young people since 1989. Most of our efforts since 2004 have been focused on retention of teachers and rewarding their quality and improvement, and your support of this event will help us continue to do that.

The Honor an Educator Breakfast will be held at Vance County Schools Administrative Services Center on Graham Avenue from 7:30 a.m. until 9:00 a.m. Call 492-2127 ext. 2105 for additional information or to order tickets.

As concerned citizens, we can do no better than try to improve the lives of our children; improving their opportunities for a good education is an important step toward that.
