Teachers and students in Harrison County will wake up bright and early for the first day of school tomorrow, but before the hallways come to life with activity, a group of Jeepers came out to show their support for educators.
On the brink of a new school year that’s set to bring on many changes for everyone involved, the community came out in a show of unity to show teachers and students they’re not alone. Lyman Elementary PE Teacher Jennifer Moran said, “I just thought, you know, why not start this year off with what I think we need more than anything, and that’s prayer.”
Jeeper and PE Teacher Jennifer Moran rallied fellow Jeep enthusiasts on the Coast and drove to Lyman Elementary School to offer their prayers and encouragement for a safe and successful start to the new year.
Moran says she’s received support from all over the country as she prepares to welcome back her little Lyman Leaders. “We’re doing everything that we can to make this a safe learning environment, a healthy learning environment, and a normal environment for these children.”
Parent and prayer leader Jason Rutledge says a simple gathering of support can be powerful. “The Jeep community does a lot together you know, and anyway we can help out there, you know, is always a plus.”
With more unknowns on the horizon for the school year, Jeepers ask everyone to continue sending warm wishes to those heading back after a long absence. “Not just today but every day. Just, you know, let that be your ride to work. Pray for these teachers, administrators. Pray for the children, the bus drivers, custodians, cafeteria workers. Anybody involved in the school system.”
