INK!’s (Investing in Kids) Make a Mark Award campaign is currently underway as a special recognition program in partnership with a local business and key sponsor, Tutoring Club of St. Johns. The program honors teachers in St. Johns County public schools who encourage students to make positive advancements in school and their communities. To nominate a teacher, visit the website and submission form at https://ink-stjohns.org/make-a-mark. As the 501(c)(3) direct support organization, INK! leads efforts to benefit educators and students of the St. Johns County, Fla. public school district.
“Educators work so hard to ensure their students’ success,” said Donna Lueders, INK! Executive Director. “This year is especially difficult because teachers are expected to instruct both in class and virtually simultaneously.”
“When a teacher invests in their students, they can inspire them to persevere and not give up. A teacher will be chosen each month beginning Sunday, November 1 until Sunday, May 30, 2021. Those selected will demonstrate an ability to go above and beyond the call of duty,” said Donna Lueders, INK! Executive Director. Each winner is nominated by students, parents, colleagues, friends, and community business partners. Winners will receive a gift basket of prizes including a free assessment and one-month complimentary tutoring for a student of their choice from Tutoring Club of St. Johns.
