Pay It Forward
Cristy Long, a grandmother in our community who is raising her grandchildren, recently nominated Ray-Pec East Middle School wrestling coaches Dan Tuttle and Lou Garcia for the Pay It Forward segment on Fox4 KC. Long nominated them in appreciation for their work to encourage students, and in particular, her grandson. Fox4 Reporter Kathy Quinn visited East Middle School on Monday to surprise the coaches with the recognition. They also received a $400 gift card. Here’s a link to the story.
