Jonathan Wells receives Lion Chaser Award
Jonathan Wells, a math teacher at Hopkins County Central, was presented with the #LionChaser / #GiantSlayer Award at the Dec. 17 Board of Education Meeting. He was honored for responding generously to help provide breakfast food to students on Nov. 16. Breakfast wasn’t served in the cafeteria because of a two-hour delay that day. Mr. Wells obtained donations from donut shops and other businesses that morning. Twelve dozen donuts, hundreds of Pop-Tarts and cereal bars, and 15 cases of bottled water were donated. Since then, Hopkins County Schools has announced that breakfast WILL be served when there is a two-hour delay. That morning, nearly 500 students received breakfast because of his actions!
