Franklin Pierce School District Awards a City Treasure and Community Leader Dr. Eric Scroggins as Partners in Education

Dr. Scroggins proudly holds the Partners in Education award after the event.

On May 8, 2012 Dr. Eric Scroggins received the Partner in Education award from the Franklin Pierce School Board. The board awarded Dr. Scroggins and the team at City Treasures Thrift Store for their commitment to underserved students in the district. Each week staff and volunteers from the store work together to assemble food packs for Brookdale Elementary and Elmhurst Elementary School students.  These two schools have a very high population of students that are not sufficiently nourished over each weekend.  The food packs are distributed to the students and are filled with nutritious foods that the kids can prepare themselves.  Roughly 30 students provided with weekend food packages come to school on Mondays nourished and fully ready to learn.

Dr. Scroggins said, “The true reward for the receiving recognition came in talking with three young pastors who attended the event and are now considering similar programs in their communities.” Franklin Pierce School District, through nominations by teachers and staff, recognize partners in the community that are working to make a difference in the lives of the students.  Dr. Scroggins and his team at City Treasures Thrift Store have shown an exemplary level of commitment to the students in Franklin Pierce School District. They intend to continue the program and impact the community in a positive way.
