Frankie Ballard made a surprise appearance at a Nashville-area elementary school last Wednesday, giving $1,000 worth of school supplies to to an unsuspecting teacher. The McGavock Elementary school teacher, Josh Wright, was also given an award during the surprise donation which included a printer, digital camera, desk chair and essential school supplies. The appearance was part of the Office Max “A Day Made Better” campaign.
The donation was made to celebrate Josh going above the call of being a teacher to help bring the best possible education to his students in his classroom. He was one of many teachers who spend $1,000 out-of-pocket annually on classroom supplies for their students. OfficeMax and Adopt-A-Classroom partnered up for the “A Day Made Better” campaign to help stop teacher-funded classrooms.
