The morning of Feb. 22 was a good one for first-grade students in Bree Fogleman’s class at Bellefonte Elementary School. After all, one of their classmates, Macie Fisher, was the winner of a donation of $1,000 worth of school supplies for her classroom, thanks to a contest won in her name through J.B. Hunt Transport.
According to Foster Cook, a representative of the company, Macie’s grandfather Elwood McClintic entered the contest, called Adopt-A-Class, for his granddaughter.
“Every year we have a contest for our drivers in which they can nominate their children’s classrooms for a donation of school supplies,” Cook said.
Fogelman said she was alerted about the winnings and brainstormed with her students to provide a list of school supplies they needed most. On Friday, the supplies were delivered in a J.B. Hunt truck and unwrapped by the students. They also received an Adopt-A-Class T-shirt and a pizza party.
