Helping Hearts – Nicole and Leslie
One morning we got the chance to award two special people with the Helping Hearts Award at Haughton Middle School. Nicole and Leslie have been consistently taking special care of their students since schools have closed due to COVID-19. When students who have needed some extra help and attention, they have been sure to meet their needs even though they haven’t been able to see them face to face everyday. We are so honored to be able to highlight these difference makers with Bossier Schools and Advance Awards & Gifts!
Helping Hearts – Ms. Gullet
With great honor we celebrated our next Helping Hearts Award recipient Ms. Gullet! Ms. Gullet is an ESL teacher at Central Park. When word came out that schools would no longer be open for students, she was quick to respond to the needs of her students, and to form relationships with their families. She worked with her church to make sure that their needs for meals would be met, and that none of her children would be without during this difficult time. We are proud to honor instructors just like her who take the time to care for her students, especially when things get difficult.
Helping Hearts – BPSTIL
We partnered with Advance Awards & Gifts and Bossier Schools to continue to honor those educators, staff members, and teams who make a difference in the lives of our students during this time. We had the opportunity to give our very first Helping Hearts Award to the CTE Department at BPSTIL. When schools were closed due to COVID-19 the technical school had a very interesting task to take on. They have worked hard to come up with creative ways to teach hands on classes, to students who are at home. We are so grateful for their dedication to their students, and their futures.
