VYVE BROADBAND TEACHER OF THE MONTH PROGRAM RECOGNIZES TEACHERS WHO ARE GETTING IT RIGHT
36 Public School Teachers from Oklahoma, Texas and Arkansas Recognized for their Outstanding Contributions
Vyve Broadband is obsessed with great teaching. That’s why they founded the Vyve Teacher of the Month program, to show teachers how special they really are.
Through the first-ever Vyve Teacher of the Month program, residents across 12 markets in three states took to social media and the Vyve website to nominate and recognize local school teachers for their extraordinary commitment to students both inside and outside of the classroom.
“We believe it is essential to recognize the work of outstanding teachers in every community we operate, to share their experiences, and to support them in their growth,” says Diane Quennoz, Vyve SVP, Marketing and Customer Experience. “Many of them are unsung heroes that go unnoticed. Maybe they helped a student earn a better grade, maybe they gave a student encouragement to do better, or maybe they were just there when a student needed to talk. Whatever the reason, we appreciate what they do for our students.”
For this initial three month campaign, winners were named each month from March to May in the following Vyve markets: Dumas, Ark., McGehee, Ark., Durant, Okla., Guymon, Okla., McAlester, Okla., Hooks, TX, Shawnee, Okla., New Boston, TX, Maud, TX, De Kalb, TX, Perryton, TX, and Dalhart, TX.
More than 500 school teachers were nominated through this first-ever program, garnering hundreds of votes and social engagements, plus media mentions.
“We are thrilled with the overwhelming participation, through both voting and social interaction for the launch of the Vyve Teacher of the Month program,” said Quennoz. “Our goal is to recognize outstanding teachers in our rural markets, and we have engaged entire communities in doing that through this program. We are looking forward to the 2017 – 2018 school year and honoring even more deserving teachers.” The Vyve Teacher of the Month award is presented to teachers who have proven to be champions of the classroom and stewards of their community through their teaching, mentoring and leadership. Nominations and voting for Vyve Teacher of the Month was open to anyone in the community via Facebook and the Vyve website. Vyve Teacher of the Month will return this fall at www.vyvebroadband.com/teacher or www.facebook.com/vyvebroadband.
