The store manager, Mr. Drexler and the personnel director, Ms. Smith met with a large number of the staff members during a faculty meeting and shared refreshments and gifts. Mr. Drexler noted that he is aware that educators have a very important and difficult task, and that he wanted to help us and show his support – and that of Walmart – in any way he could. The store offered a back to school discount for school employees earlier this year, and during this meeting, gave away 20 $50 gift cards in a random drawing. Winners were: Robin Coker, Christy Coker, Amy Culick, Merlenia Brown, Debra Driggers, Marie Ham, Catherine Kirby, Beth Yarborough, Lorraine Green, Ashley Floyd, Eydie Cannon, Vanessa Witherspoon, Kim Driggers, Shelley Lowder, Judy Coker, Michelle Weaver, Jessica Boyington, Betsy Jordan, Bertie Nesbitt, and Marie Dukes. Some of the winners are pictured above, along with Ms. Smith and Mr. Drexler. WGE is very appreciative of this recognition and these gifts.
