Dr. Susan Thames, principal of Indian Spring Middle School, has received an Educators Student Choice Award. The honor is bestowed monthly by Educator's Credit Union and KXXV-TV as a part of their public relations campaign to draw attention to the wonderful job performed by school teachers and administrators throughout the Greater Waco area.
Thames was nominated by an anonymous group of 8th-grade girls who called her "a little woman with a big heart." The girls added, "Dr. T is someone who makes us proud and makes us want to work hard to become good adults who make it in the world.”
"It was definitely a heartfelt nomination," said EDCU Marketing Director Rachel Wilde. "It is clear that Dr. Thames is making a difference in the lives of these students."
KXXV News Channel 25 will air footage of the award on Monday, November 4, during its 6 a.m. news program and Tuesday, November 5, during its 6 p.m. news program.
