Annin presents donation at Hopewell ceremony

| June 1, 2014

COSHOCTON – Annin employees made a special presentation to Hopewell School during its annual recognition ceremony.

The company raised $5,000 during Autism Awareness Month and divided that money between several schools and $900 of it was given to Hopewell at its May 29 end of the year program.

“I’m very proud to tell you that my son started here in preschool and he’s now going into fifth grade,” said Kelly Watson, who works at Annin. “I believe that the staff here is the reason why he is a healthy young man today.”

Watson, her son Tyler and fellow Annin employee Brenda Howell all helped present the check.

“I challenge other local companies next April (which is Autism Awareness Month) to also help raise money for our local schools,” Kelly said.

During the ceremony preschoolers who are moving on to kindergarten were honored and every student who attends the school also received a special recognition. The staff, parents and PTO members also were celebrated for all their hard work during the school year and teacher Travis Edie was especially recognized with the Outstanding Educator Award.

“I had no idea about this,” he said. “I’m blessed to work at Hopewell.”
