LAS VEGAS May 17, 2022 – Walker Furniture delivered brand new furniture and accessories for the teachers’ lounge at Fredric W Watson Elementary School today thanks to a fourth grader’s submission letter.

Each year, Walker Furniture in cooperation with the Clark County School District School-Community Partnership Program gives students in Southern Nevada an opportunity to win new furnishings for their school’s teachers’ lounge by writing a letter describing their favorite teacher. Letters received were 250 this year.

“This annual competition is rewarding and gratifying for everyone involved,” said Walker Furniture co-owner Linda Alterwitz-Mizrahi and organizer of the Teacher Appreciation Day program. “It provides students an opportunity to honor their teachers. We are reminded by their touching letters of the contributions and the sacrifices our teachers make and the impact their dedication has on the children in our community.”

This year, Fredric W Watson Elementary School was the winner, thanks to a letter written by 4th grade student, Kiara Ramirez. She is in Ms. Loveall’s class and wrote about the school counselor Ms. Manns. For her outstanding letter, Ramirez received $100 cash along with a certificate and Ms. Manns, who just had her baby, a $250 Walker Furniture gift certificate.

In her letter to Walker Furniture, Ramirez wrote about Ms. Manns being someone you can talk to about problems and trust. She keeps things private and helps everyone solve their problems.

School principal Shawn Nielsen was on hand for the delivery of the furniture items including a sofa, loveseat, end table, lamp, coffee table, plants and picture.
