Cheryl Best, 5th grade teacher at Wolf ridge Elementary, received a generous gift from the Mount Vernon Ladies Association after submitting an essay describing why George Washington is an important historical figure. The Ladies Association donated a beautiful replica canvas painting of George Washington, accompanied by a full size flag that had formerly flown over Washington’s home in Mount Vernon, Virginia. The school has placed the portrait, along with the flag in a prominent place above the main office door. They are planning to place a commemorative plaque adjacent to the gits explaining how the school received the gifts.
