The St. Cloud Rox Project S.A.V.E. Foundation paid tribute to five (5) area Central Minnesota educators that were chosen through an online promotion back in May where students from grades K-12 nominated teachers that made an impact through fun and unique virtual teaching lessons at the end of the school year. Each of the recipients chosen received a $500 VISA Gift Card to use for classroom supplies and a special plaque that read a TEACHER OPENS A MIND .. TOUCHES A HEART … AND SHAPES THE FUTURE FOR THEIR STUDENTS! The teachers were saluted during the Rox Wednesday, August 12th home game.
