Students and staff at Ferris Independent School District (OK) dedicated the Ferris Junior High SmartLab in honor of teachers Jennifer and Dondi Markgraf.
Curriculum Director Christi Nies sent us the link to this wonderful video documenting the ceremony. Christi added, "As I watched this, I was moved to tears of gratitude for what the SmartLab has meant to the students of Ferris ISD. You are changing lives, gentlemen!"
Thank you Christi. It is our partnership with educational communities like yours that makes all the difference.
