Harper GATES Teacher Receives Grant
Faith Shiver and her 1st grade GATES (Gifted and Talented Education Services) students at Thomasville City Schools' Harper Elementary felt like Christmas came early last week. They were the recipients of the Walmart Community Grant for Facility #889. Walmart granted the group $1,000 to purchase updated iPads for their classes. The grant states that Walmart is thrilled to support the work in their communities and share a desire to provide local impact. By receiving this grant, Shiver is part of a long history of Walmart’s commitment to giving back to the communities where they operate. Helen Walton, wife of Walmart founder Sam Walton, used to say, "It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived." Thomasville Store Manager, Brian Renfro, stated that he is happy when Walmart can help out local schools with much needed supplies.
