Wal-Mart honors Eagles Landing Middle School teachers


  Hudson Bridge Wal-Mart location in Stockbridge, GA recognized the hard work and efforts put forth by teachers in their community by honoring teachers from Eagle’s Landing Middle School. Twenty faculty names were drawn by students (Betty Jackson and Jason Selvaraj), Henry County Board of Education Vice Chair Mr. Erik Charles, and two representatives from the Hudson Bridge Wal-Mart (Shante White and Chun West) and the winners received a $50.00 Wal-Mart gift card. Wal-Mart started this program with the knowledge that many educators reach into their own pockets each year to provide supplies for their classrooms and this was their way of acknowledging and honoring ELMS teachers.

From l. to r.: Mr. Erik Charles, Dr. Earlene Crump, Shante White and Chun West pose with cake and donuts provided to teachers in addition to coffee, juice and twenty $50 gift cards.

  Dr. Earlene Crump, Principal of Eagle’s Landing Middle School, offered Wal-Mart her sincere appreciation and applauded her faculty and staff stating, “If we really embrace the idea that it takes a village to raise a child; we have to continue to reach out to our community. Henry County is a great place to live and work. We have a community that supports education and understands the importance of great teachers. Eagle’s Landing Middle School has a vibrant history full of accomplishments by remarkable students and dedicated teachers. Thank you Wal-Mart for being a part of our community and showing your support both in words and in deeds; we’re sincerely appreciative of your efforts.”

  Mr. Charles thanked Co-Manager Shante White and Human Resources and Personnel director Chun West for taking the time to personally come out and show appreciation and stated, “I am thankful for partners such as Wal-Mart for stepping up to the plate and recognizing the importance of education in our community.”
