SAU Professor of Teacher Education Cathy Daters, PhD, was checking on one of her student teachers at Alan Shepard Elementary in Long Grove, Iowa.
She noticed principal Sherri Marceau walking with a load of clean, folded clothes.
"I asked her what she was doing," said Daters.
Marceau had taken a student's clothes home and laundered them, something she and several of her faculty and staff did on a regular basis.
Daters immediately thought of Channel 8's "Pay It Forward" award. The award, co-sponsored by Ascentra Credit Union, would provide $300 and some much-deserved recognition.
So she nominated Marceau and made some plans of her own. Watch the HD News Channel 8 video for the rest of the story.
