Our school is proud of the traditions, high expectations, and inviting atmosphere that make it a good place to learn and grow.

Thanks, Wal-Mart for Giving to School

 How often does one get a call out of the blue saying someone wants to appreciate your staff? Wow! That is exactly what happened thanks to the generous and thoughtful folks of Wal-Mart.

Winners of the gift cards: Cari Nabors, Joy Bittle, Bridget Belcher, Linda Haynes, Selena Nelson, Valerie Harris, Dani Odom Winn, Kelly Davidson, Wal-Mart Manager Lori Johnson, Employee Pat Simmons, Teresa Brooks, and Rhonda Nunn.

Not only did they bring a delicious freshly baked cake, but Manager Lori Johnson and long time store employee Pat Simmons held a drawing for ten $100 gift cards to be spent for the classrooms.

Most importantly, they made teachers feel special and appreciated. Wal-Mart manager, Mrs. Johnson said teachers spend hundreds of dollars out of their own pockets each year. I know this is true of the teachers at R. L. Young and throughout the Talladega City School District. Teachers go this extra mile because they care about their students.

Thanks, Wal-Mart for caring about our schools, students, and teachers. You are enriching our community and the lives of Talladega.
