Between Monday, Sept. 30, and Sunday, Oct. 27, SONIC fans voted for the projects they found the most inspiring, ranging from new pencils and paper to new tablets and robotics kits.
That vote gave some local public school teachers a portion of the $1 million raised during the campaign.
In Wichita Falls, 11 outstanding teachers at three different schools in the District were among the public school teachers whose projects earned funding for teaching resources as part of the annual Fall Voting campaign.
- Cristina Manzel at Booker T Washington Elementary for the projects “Let’s Get Some Celebrating Up in Here!”, “We Need a Chromebook, Yes We Do!” and “We Need a Doc! A Document Camera.”
