Duke at North Carolina

Congrats, Sara Morrow

Winner of Duke at North Carolina

Congrats, Sara, and thanks for being you; we think you are pretty great!

Sara is an 8th grade English Language Arts teacher at Roxboro Community School. She has spent her entire career at the middle school level and loves it.

“At that age, students are wild and free - full of life and energy. They definitely keep me on my toes because I have to stay one step ahead of them! I've always loved reading and try to find stories and books that resonate with students at their level,” says Sara.

Eckrich, in partnership with Extra Yard for Teachers & our valued retail partners, is giving teachers the chance to win $1 Million to fund local classroom projects! Sara Morrow from Roxboro, NC was on the field October 2nd at the UNC vs. Duke game in Chapel Hill for her big chance.

Sara scored $2,500 to fund classroom projects! She also walked away with $500 worth of groceries courtesy of our partner, Harris Teeter.

As she nears retirement, she plans to use these funds across her school community. Be it books for the library, supplies for the Special Education department, or replacing some of the 30-year old furniture in the classrooms, she continues to improve the daily lives of her students.

Congratulations again, Sara, and thanks to you and all the other teachers in America - the real MVPs!
