Midwest Eye honors teachers

By Mandy Underwood

Midwest Eye Consultants of Wabash did a Teacher appreciation giveaway leading up to the 2019-20 school year.

Once the giveaway was announced, the public was invited to submit teachers who they thought deserved to be a recipient of the giveaway. Winners received a $100 gift card to help purchase classroom supplies.

“We do an annual Back to School giveaway. However, in the past, it was focused more at giving school supplies to students. We’ve found that there are many wonderful community resources for this already, so we wanted to shift our focus and give back to the teachers who put so much time, effort and resources into children,” said Marketing Manager Kara Teel.

There were 65 nominations in total ranging from all over Indiana to northwest Ohio.

The winners of the giveaway were as follows:

Natalie Unger of Southwood Elementary, Michelle Matney of Clifty Creek Elementary, Shae Lauer of Metro North Elementary, Ronda Dubuque of Southwood Elementary, Kimberly Hehe of Bonaire Elementary, Kathy Geible of Wabash High School, Sara Presley of Hendry Park Elementary, Gwen Mize of Manchester Junior-Senior High School, Bridget Burnett of Hope Elementary, and Angela Herring of Metro North Elementary.

“Giving back to our community is at the core of who we are as a company,” Teel said. “We are passionate about taking care of our patients, but our doctors and staff members also reach beyond the practice doors to volunteer, get involved in events, charities and causes. We embrace the opportunity to positively impact as many lives as possible, in as many ways as possible through our community involvement and partnerships with organizations like Leader Dogs for the Blind. We’re so happy this giveaway had such an impact on the community and that we could give back to our educators.”

Midwest Eye will be doing another giveaway for the 2020-21 school year.
