My Give Greatness Nominee


I’ve talked before about Mrs. Adkins.

At 90 years old, she still works at my school every day, teaching kids and directing our Learning Lab at Westwood. She has a legacy of more than 50 years of teaching and helping kids who are challenged to reach their fullest potential.


Not only did Mrs. Adkins help me work on my SAT score when I was in high school, but in second grade, she taught me to love art when she was my teacher. She’s spent a lifetime helping children and is one of the greatest educators I’ve ever known.  I have two children with learning differences, and she’s helped them to be successful as well. Hundreds of children who grew up to become doctors, lawyers, and teachers (like me) praise Mrs. Adkins for what she has inspired.

What can you win? (Besides just encouraging the person you nominated.)

With each nomination, both the nominator and the nominee are entered to win a classroom technology package valued at up to $40,000. Nominator and nominee each win one 7000 series SMART Board, one SMART Document Camera, 30 Chromebooks, SMART training and implementation support, and more.

Who is Your Give Greatness Nominee?

Now it’s your turn. Who is your Give Greatness nominee? And as long as you’re nominating this educator, why not tell everyone about what makes him or her great?
