TWHS Principal Wins Day Off

Jeanne Carton, principal of Topeka West High School, won a day off of work thanks to her donation to the Topeka Public Schools Foundation. Every year, to encourage Foundation support, TPS superintendant Dr. Julie Ford offers the chance to win an extra day of leave to an employee who makes a Foundation contribution. Ethel Edwards, NEA Topeka Chapter President, drew Ms. Carton’s name from amongst the names of the many contributing staff members. Then, on Friday, November 8th, Dr. Ford, Ms. Edwards, and Pamela Johnson-Betts, TPS Foundation executive director, made a surprise visit to TWHS to present Ms. Carton with the news of her win. Congratulations, and enjoy your day off, Ms. Carton!
