Drew Central’s Thurman receives honor

February 1st, 2007 by

The Weyerhaeuser Company Foundation honored 20 Arkansas educators at an awards luncheon on January 24 in Little Rock. The winning teachers received $500 mini grant awards for creative ideas they will bring to life in the classroom. The 10 elementary and 10 secondary teachers in Arkansas public schools claimed a total of $10,000 in mini-grants. The Arkansas Community Foundation administers the program. Included in this year’s winners was Dennis Thurman of Monticello’s Drew Central High School.

Oh, It’s Just Water under the Bridge and Growing Is Knowing are just two of many,” said Kathy Stacey, Weyerhaeuser public affairs manager. “‘When these projects hit the classrooms, it will make it more fun for the students to learn math, science and the environment. That’s what it’s all about.”

The Weyerhaeuser Company Foundation is a non-profit organization funded from the earnings of Weyerhaeuser Company. The international forest products firm manages more than 700,000 acres of commercial timberland in Arkansas and has operations or offices in Russellville, Magnolia, Dierks, De Queen, Emerson, Fort Smith and Hot Springs. The mission of the Weyerhaeuser Company Foundation is to improve the quality of life in communities where Weyerhaeuser has a presence, and to increase understanding of the importance and sustainabiiity of forests and the products they provide to meet people’s needs.

    Congratulations Dennis. It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. If any of you don’t know them Dennis and his wife Edith are 2 of the nicest people you will ever meet. Both of them are dedicated teachers and Drew Central is a better school because of them.

  2. Jo Anne Smith says:

    The information for the photograph is correct. Pat Lile is the President/CEO of The Arkansas Community Foundation, not Weyerhaeuser.
