Letter: Honor educators of your life

May. 11, 2013 @ 01:55 PM

To the editor:

It is all about the children. The Vance County Public School Foundation is a non-profit organization devoted to improving education in the Vance County Schools. Most of our efforts center on retention of teachers and rewarding their quality and improvement.

On June 7, we will hold our sixth annual “Honor an Educator Breakfast.” Buying a ticket allows anyone the opportunity to honor their favorite retired or active teacher and support the foundation. The event will be held at the Vance County Schools central office at 7:30 a.m. For information or tickets, the number to call is (252) 492-2127, extension 2105.

As concerned citizens, we can do no better than try to improve the lives of our children. This effort is a step in that direction.

W. Beverly Tucker, M.D.
