Hwy 49 Walmart Showers Ten Hawkins Elementary Educators with Gifts- On Wednesday, September 22, 2010, Associates from the Highway 49 Walmart visited George L. Hawkins Elementary in Hattiesburg, MS to reward ten teachers with a small gift and a $100 gift card. “Teachers spending their money to educate and feed our children… not if we can help it!” is the slogan that motivated the gift. Teachers historically spend several hundred dollars of their own money each year on their students, so you can only imagine the excitement stemmed from such a gift. In addition to the gift cards, Walmart was·also generous enough to provide lunch for all of the faculty and staff at Hawkins. The students and teachers of Hawkins Elementary wish to thank Walmart for their generosity.
