I am a child nutrition manager for Edmond public schools Edmond Oklahoma.
I am very proud to be able to say that today.
My daughter is a Jr at North High school and has had many teachers whom she looks up to over the years. It was great to see some of them today all walking together for school funding.
We we’re quite lucky the weather was gorgeous, one of those rare spring days in Oklahoma. And with the help of Edmond and OKC Police we all landed safely at the capitol from the Edmond administration building. About a 14 mile walk.
Along with teachers and administrators we ran into a few other child nutrition friends and waved at the maintenance department and its workers waving to us from the other side of the street.
I must say it was a sight to see. All the support along the way. People honking and waving and recording us on their phones as they drove by. Shouting comments like “stand strong” and ” go get your money”
Thank you to all who lined the way to hand out water, fruit, candy, and snacks it helped make our walk easier.
I have blisters on my feet and need a massage, but I am proud to say I work for Edmond public schools today.
