Teacher Allison Sayavong of Kitayama Elementary School in Union City is one of about 75 California teachers recently honored by OfficeMax on "A Day Made Better."
OfficeMax representatives visited the school on the morning of October 2, to present Ms. Sayavong with more than $1,000 worth of classroom supplies. She received a rolling leather chair and a huge gift box that included dozens of items to be used with her students.
Superintendent Kari McVeigh and Principal Lisa Metzinger joined Manager Mike Goodrick of the Union Landing Office Max to surprise Ms. Sayavong in front of her students. OfficeMax also donated about 20 boxes filled with classroom supplies to be shared by other Kitayama teachers.
This is the sixth year that OfficeMax sponsored "A Day Made Better." Nationwide, about 1,200 teachers were honored.
