A “thank you” to those supporting Good Neighbor Award recipients

Dear Editor,

On behalf of Delta Kappa Gamma International and its Johnson County chapter, Gamma Mu, I wish to thank those who generously donated to the contents of the “Goodie Bags” that were presented to the recipients of The Good Neighbor Award at a reception in their honor May 1, 2018.Gift cards were donated by Bizzies, Little Caesar’s, McDonald’s, Burger King and Hardees. Elizabethton Federal, Farmer’s State Bank, Johnson County Bank and Mountain Electric also contributed.

To all of these generous business establishments, THANK YOU for helping us recognize and affirm the five Middle School students who were named Good Neighbors for consistently demonstrating the qualities we want in our neighbors: compassion, kindness, and generosity.

In addition to local support, the students were especially honored by Rep. Timothy Hill, who presented each one with a Proclamation which had been read on the floor of the Tennessee House of Representatives in their honor, and Sen. Jon Lundberg sent to each student a flag that had been flown on the Capitol Building in Nashville in their honor. Dr. Phil Roe, our representative in the United States House of Representative, sent a personal note of congratulations to each Good Neighbor as well. Their support of our students means a great deal!
