Foundation Awards Springfield Teachers

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — Some teachers in Springfield got some big surprises Wednesday.

The Springfield Education Foundation surprised teachers during the school day, along with the Thurston High School drumline.

The executive director of the foundation says this is a way to show appreciation for teachers and help them get their students excited about learning.

“I tell people that this is a day where we make the teachers cry and the kids scream, scream and cheer so it’s very emotional that they see the community coming out to award our grants,” said Ronnel Curry, Springfield Education Foundation.

Curry says the foundation handed out $40,000 worth of grants across the district.
