Charles Monnett's wife has worked in public education her entire career. He knows first-hand the enormous time and effort teachers put into their classroom in order to provide the best education for their students - and how they spend hundreds of dollars of their own money every year on classroom supplies.
To recognize the commitment our teachers make to their students, the law firm of Charles G. Monnett III & Associates has chosen to award one deserving teacher in each county in our area a $250 Visa Gift Card for classroom supplies each month during the upcoming school year. Students, families and faculty may nominate and vote for their special teacher by visiting our Hometown Heroes web page. Each month, the winning teacher in each county will receive a $250 gift card... and, to celebrate, their classroom will receive a Domino's Pizza Party!
