Ro­tary seek­ing Bryant teacher nom­i­na­tions

The Saline Courier - - FRONT PAGE - By Elisha Mor­ri­son el­[email protected]­ton­courier.com

Thanks to a grant, the

Bryant Ro­tary Club will be hon­or­ing a dif­fer­ent Bryant teacher each month through May and is ask­ing for nom­i­na­tions to get the com­mu­nity in­volved.

Each year the Ro­tary Dis­trict 6170 gives each pres­i­dent money to use in a way that goes along with Ro­tary’s mis­sion, explained Bryant Ro­tary Pres­i­dent Shelby Joiner.

This year’s funds for the Bryant club will be used each month to give a teacher $150 worth of school sup­plies. Joiner said the club will reach out to the win­ning teach­ers to find out what sup­plies they need. She added the club is help­ing chil­dren through the teach­ers.

The nom­i­na­tions are open to any Bryant teacher, in­clud­ing teach­ers at Arkansas Chris­tian Academy.

Par­ents, stu­dents and com­mu­nity mem­bers can visit www.bryantro­tary.org/ nom­i­nate-teacher to nom­i­nate their fa­vorites. Teach­ers can be nom­i­nated in mul­ti­ple months, but can only win one time, Joiner said.

By open­ing up the nom­i­na­tions to the com­mu­nity, Joiner feels the club is al­low­ing the com­mu­nity to also give back to its teach­ers.

Nom­i­na­tions open on the 15th of the month through the first of the month be­ing nom­i­nated for.

Ro­tary will take all the names and ran­domly choose a win­ner each month. The club will pub­li­cize the win­ner through its web­site and a press re­lease.

A group of Ro­tar­i­ans will ar­range with the teacher to de­liver the sup­plies to the school.

At the 2020 Ro­tary Con­fer­ence, the club will show­case what it did with its grant.

Joiner hopes to have nom­i­na­tions from the com­mu­nity be­cause she wants peo­ple to get in­volved.

She said she is proud of the Bryant Ro­tary Club’s in­volve­ment with the com­mu­nity each year, in­clud­ing through its

Kids Closet, and is honored to be able to lead the group.
