LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The staff at T.C. Harris Academy are being thanked for their services. The Good Samaritan Project came by with gifts, flowers and certificates on Monday. This is all in an effort to give thanks to the people on the frontlines of the COVID 19 pandemic.
According to it's website T.C. Harris' "mission is 'Teaching Skills to Last a Lifetime.' We achieve our mission by ensuring individuals with disabilities have the opportunity to experience meaningful days and a self-defined quality of life through individualized support, self-direction, educational opportunities, positive family traditions and community integration."
Those at the academy were even brought a letter, courtesy of Representative Chris Campbell. Executive Director Kristy Fletcher says any gesture of thanks is welcomed.
"I think just when you drive by, give us a honk and a wave and remember that, you know what? All of us schools either residential or not. We're here. And you know what? Teachers are important. Schools are important. We need to do it, come back and be safe," she said.
The Good Samaritan Project plans to keep giving thanks to groups like T.C. Harris until this pandemic is finally over.
