The L. Hollingworth School for the Gifted and Talented, 824 Sixth on Toledo’s east side, presented some of its community partners with certificates of appreciation Dec. 7 at the Brandywine Country Club in Maumee.
Terrence C. Franklin, executive director and co-founder of L.Hollingworth, said he and the staff didn’t want to wait to the end of the school year to thank their community partners.
Instead, they chose the holiday season of giving to express their thanks, he said.
“Our partners have been doing a really great job” Franklin said.
Rachel Pitts, school board president, said “It’s a challenge for any school to stay in existence. And without our partners I don’t know how we would’ve made it.”
Munger, Munger and Associates, an 85-year-old Toledo law firm, received recognition for its work with L. Hollingworth.
Attorney Hal Munger said the firm is excited working with the school and looks forward to helping them grow.
The Toledo Journal and Adelante Inc. also received certificates for being a community partner.
L. Hollingsworth also honored three of its administrators for their work in the school.
Alex Tuttle, Mary Aquirre and Matthew Temple were the other guests of honor.
“I’m excited to have been chosen as teacher of the month for November,” said Temple, second-grade teacher.
Although happy about receiving the accolade, he said “There’s still a lot of work that needs to be done.”
