Chadron Primary School Teachers are Recipents of Walmart's Teacher Reward Program

Walmart Mangers Adam Gardner and Dave Hockenbary
      Adam Gardner, Manager of the Chadron Walmart Store, and Dave Hockenbary, Walmart Zone Manager of Groceries, surprised the certified staff at Chadron Primary School on Friday, September 27th, with a cake and a $50 Walmart Gift Certificate for each staff member in appreciation for the work that they do with the Primary Students. 
     According to Mr. Gardner, two of Walmart's main focuses are education and world hunger.  The Teacher Reward Program, sponsored by Walmart, recognizes a group of teachers from an area school each year.  This school year, the Chadron Primary staff members were the recipients.
     Chadron Primary Staff would like to thank Walmart for the gift cards, the refreshments,  and for the continued support and contributions that Chadron Walmart gives to our educational systems.
