Teacher wins money for school

Posted by Ellen Krafve - email

OVERTON, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas teacher has won $10,000 for her school!

Overton Elementary was presented with the big check. It all happened because teacher Marsha Richardson registered in an online contest, sponsored by Kraft Foods and Brookshire's. She was randomly selected as the winner of $10,000, which the campus says their students definitely need.

"I am very proud to have a teacher and PTO that will come and do things like this to get opportunities for our students that they wouldn't have otherwise and we are very excited," said Nikki Fenter, with Overton Elementary.

The school says they're using the money to buy a marquee so parents will know when events are going on. They also hope to buy laptops for some classrooms.
