Times staff report
Sullivan High School agriculture teacher Kevin Cross was selected as
one of the 2020 McDonald’s Teach it Forward Outstanding Educators.
Cross was one of 14 area educators chosen from more than 880 nominations.
The award honors educators who exhibit the ultimate dedication to
their students and contribute to the improvement of education in our
most challenging times. Local McDonald’s Owner/Operator Jami Kasprzyk
says supporting teachers is always a top priority, but this year is
more important than ever.
“Our teachers are constantly adapting to whatever is thrown at them,
while making sure our students succeed,” said Kasprzyk. “We’re excited
to recognize those who go above and beyond for our students through
the Outstanding Educator awards.”
Kasprzyk and her husband Nick partnered with other area McDonald’s
operators including Matt Comte, Robert Jedele and Wally Nowakowski to
honor the area educators:
Winners of the outstanding educator award each receive a $100 Visa
gift card to use toward their classroom; a T-shirt; and certificates
and McDonald’s coupons to “teach it forward” to parents with
outstanding students throughout the year.
McDonald’s Owner/Operator Wally Nowakowski said, “We love the idea of
paying it forward — or “teaching” it forward — to recognize students
who are also working so hard to keep up with the ever changing
landscape of education today.”
