Support our Local Teachers! PMI Tulsa to Match Giving for Local Teacher of the Year
PMI Tulsa is committed to empowering youth to realize their potential and transform lives through project management. This year, our Chapter wants to support and celebrate those individuals who are doing this work on a daily basis. That's why we're partnering with Tulsa Regional Stem Alliance and Union Public Schools to reward an outstanding teacher.
PMI and PMI Tulsa recognize that STEM activities encourage students to pursue career paths that include project management or intersect with project management (e.g. engineers, developers, etc.). Teachers are on the front lines of the effort to promote and teach STEM to our community youth. They've undergone unprecedented levels of stress and uncertainty over the last year. Our Chapter would like to recognize this and to reward a teacher whose values and character encourages Tulsa youth to reach for the stars.
Please join us in fundraising to offer a monetary award to the Union High School Teacher of the Year - Mrs. Rebecka Peterson. Every dollar donated during this drive will be matched up to $1000. With 450+ chapter members, if everyone donates $2.00, we'll be at our goal of awarding Mrs. Peterson $2000!
The amount we raise will be presented to Mrs. Peterson during an award ceremony that will be held on April 15th via Zoom. Thank you for any donations that will help our Chapter shower Mrs. Peterson with a little gratitude for her passion and service.
