Dollar General and Procter & Gamble Recognize Teacher Kimberly Shearer As An Every Day Hero
Dollar General’s Every Day Heroes program, which recognizes ordinary people doing extraordinary deeds will celebrate and honor our nation’s schools and teachers this September in partnership with Procter & Gamble.
The program is honoring Boone County High School in Florence, Kentucky, and one of its teachers, Kimberly Shearer.
Shearer is a wife and mother, as well as an English teacher at Boone County High School. She was awarded the Kentucky Teacher of the Year in 2012 due in part to her strong advocacy of 21st century literacy skills and strengths in teaching students how to evaluate information, collaborate, master technology and to become life-long readers.
In honor of Kimberly Shearer and educators everywhere, Dollar General is making a $10,000 donation to Boone County High School to help meet the needs of its diverse student body.
Shaker salutes Dollar General’s Every Day Heroes program which recognizes community leaders, literacy volunteers, military veterans and many others in the communities where Dollar General stores are located. From moms and dads to neighbors and coaches, Dollar General celebrates the people and institutions that make a difference.
