Letter to the Editor: Generous ‘pay it forward’ has certain educators feeling grateful

OPINION — My name is Steve Schofield. I am the principal of Southwest Education Academy and Alternative Programs in the Iron County School District.

It’s tradition for me and my teachers to have breakfast together the morning after our graduation ceremony. This year we chose to hang out at All American Diner. Of course, the food was delicious! We were shocked to find out that somebody had anonymously paid for our meals!

What you did meant more than you know. Our teachers work in a very unique setting where their talents and efforts can go unnoticed. We don’t have a PTA. We don’t have sports teams or extracurricular activities that help to showcase our school. Our students and parents come and go quietly. Our teachers do amazing work and don’t always get the praise they deserve. So, thank you for your kindness!

We will never forget it.
