Wal-Mart awarded 10 Dawson County educators with $100 each last week to help teachers pay for classroom supplies.


The corporation’s Teacher Awards are distributed to more than 45,000 educators nationally.


Teachers in Dawson County included: Jane Letchworth and Lori Hubbard, both of Robinson Elementary; Kay Wiley and Edie Keith, both of Kilough Elementary; Becky Guisasola, Black’s Mill Elementary; Beth Murray, Riverview Elementary; Randall Harris, Riverview Middle; Jonathan Tinsley and Karen Spencer, both of Dawson County Middle School; and Brody Hughes, Hightower Academy.


It’s the second year Wal-Mart has supported educators with the program.


In 2009, Wal-Mart and its foundation gave more than $53 million to fund education programs in communities across the country.
