Syracuse University Men’s Basketball coach Jim Boeheim, the Honorable Stephanie A. Miner, mayor of Syracuse, Sharon L. Contreras, the superintendent of the Syracuse City School District and Pat Driscoll, the director of Say Yes to Education Syracuse, were at Seymour ES to say thank you to teachers in the Syracuse City School District and to kick-off the Thank A Teacher Campaign taking place across the district.

May is Teacher Appreciation Month and local leaders and organizations are taking this opportunity to let teachers in the Syracuse City School District know how important their work is and how much they are truly appreciated.  Coach Boeheim, Mayor Miner, Superintendent Contreras and Pat Driscoll delivered a special gift basket to Seymour School teachers and personally thanked them for their hard work and dedication.

Joining them at the kick-off event was Syracuse Common Councilor and Chair of the Education Committee, Nader Maroun as well as Onondaga County Legislator Linda Ervin, Syracuse Teachers Association President Keven Ahern, members of Syracuse 20/20 and team members from Clear Channel radio stations HOT 107.9, Y94, and Power 620.

Following the event, volunteers from throughout the community will begin delivering gifts and treats to every school in the district for all the teachers. By the end of the week, teachers in every Syracuse City school will receive their special thank you!
