Catholic Charities Foster Grandparent, Earline Jackson, has received the Spring 2017 Good Apple Award sponsored by Wichita Public Schools.
She will be recognized during a special ceremony at Stucky Middle School on April 17.
Jackson has been involved with the agency’s Foster Grandparent Program since 2004.
She serves at Minneha Core Knowledge Elementary School where she mentors children during school hours and in the latchkey program.
“Grandma is one of the first people at school and one of the last to leave,” said a school system spokesperson. “Grandma Jackson’s smile lights up Minneha.”
The Good Apple Award program allows schools and administrative support centers to recognize employees, volunteers and school partners who provide exemplary service to the district and its students.
Twice each year, principals and selection committees take up the arduous task of reviewing nominations and selecting only three award recipients for their buildings.
Catholic Charities thanks its community partner, Wichita Public Schools for this honor, and Congratulations, Grandma Jackson!
