CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In an effort to recognize educators in the community, FSIoffice has partnered with the Carolina Panthers to conduct their Teacher of the Week Program for the third year in a row.
This program allows customers and employees of FSIoffice to nominate teachers who excel in the classroom and create a passion for learning among their students. Nominees receive gift boxes with a variety of supplies to use in their classroom. Each week of the Panthers regular season through the December 9th game, a winner will be chosen. Weekly winners receive an additional supply of classroom items and two tickets to the December 9th Panthers home game against the Atlanta Falcons. From the 13 weekly winners, a Teacher of the Year will be chosen and recognized at the game and given a desk chair, laptop computer and projector for their classroom. Last year, Rodney Orr, a teacher at Heide Trask High School, was the recipient of the award.
FSIoffice recognizes the need for greater support and increased funding for teachers and schools. The goal of the Teacher of the Week program is to give back to the teachers that give to the children in our community every day. The program has had great success in its first two years, with 573 nominees last year, and hopes to have high levels of participation again this time around. Nomination opens September 1st.
