Morgantown Community Shows Support for WVA Faculty and Staff.

Forty years ago, in 1984, the National Parent Teacher Association set the tradition of using the first full week of May to honor teachers. Last week, local businesses praised West Virginia Academy's faculty and staff with many surprises. Thanks to the tireless efforts of Brittany Nuzzo and WVA administration, faculty and staff enjoyed catered meals, gift cards, yummy treats, and swag to brighten their day.

Here is what the teachers had to say:

"Thank you all SO much. I can’t imagine how much thought and work went into all of the treats each day, along with doing your day-to-day tasks" - Prof. Ryan

"Thank you to all administration, teachers and parents who made Teacher Appreciation week SO special. It was not the food or gifts that made it special, it was the thought and care that went into each item and funny pun. I felt seen and appreciated all week and it showed my kids firsthand how to fill someone's bucket, be thoughtful and kind. Thank you for all you do!!" - Prof. Ireland

"Last week's teacher appreciation week was absolutely fantastic! It was evident that so much time and thought was put into each and every day. It was really nice to feel appreciated and part of a unified team for this last push of the year." - Prof. Duda

"“THANK YOU is the least I can say. You made us feel so special and appreciated in so many ways. I cannot ask for a better working environment and being surrounded by such caring staff and administration at WVA!” - Prof. Ghattas

West Virginia Academy would like to extend their gratitude to Crumbl Cookie and the Cupcakerie for their donated treats as well as Oliverios, Chili's, Keglers, Pizza Al's, and Village Butcher for providing meals.

Other kind gifts included:

  • Oliverio Realty for generously donating money for a lunch for teachers.

  • Kindred Spirits Yoga and Wellness Studio donated sessions

  • Joseph the Salon donated hair cuts

  • Kegler's donated games of bowling

  • Massullos Cleaners provided free gift cards

  • Chick-fil-a gave coupons for a free sandwich

  • Stonetower Brewery donated gift cards

  • West Virginia Junior College donated insulated lunch bags for each teacher

Not only did the surrounding businesses pitch in to show their appreciation, but families of scholars also brought in food, treats and gift cards to show support as well. WVA recognizes the sacrifice that each teacher makes in the lives of their scholars. The faculty and staff are key to the happy warmth that is felt at West Virginia Academy when walking through the doors. We hope families will support those businesses in our community that have done so much for our teachers.

Thank you, Morgantown community, for supporting WVA last week.
