North Omaha Teacher Receives Can Do Educator Award

Kids Can Community Center is proud to announce the recipient of the first Can Do Educator Award, Dominique Beverly.

Beverly is a teacher and support coach at Miller Park Elementary School. For the past three years, she has been teaching fifth grade students. “One of the main reasons I am inspired to teach is because every day I have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our youth,” said Beverly.
According to Kids Can Site Director, Tishara Wardlow, “Ms. Beverly is a role model, parent figure, and advocate for our after-school program. She is the link between our program and the school system, but she also holds high expectations for our students and uses her connections with the students to establish classroom structure and discipline.”

The Can Do Educator, sponsored by Oxbow Animal Health, is the newest award to be presented at the Can Do Luncheon on April 22nd. “Oxbow is thrilled to sponsor this new award, honoring a local educator who has made a difference within their school and in support of Kids Can programs. Oxbow admires and supports local educators who invite curiosity, guide learning, spark imagination, and nurture self-esteem in the youngest members of our community,” said Deborah Buhro, CEO, Oxbow Animal Health.

The luncheon will feature keynote speaker, Othello H. Meadows III, CEO of Seventy Five North Revitalization Corporation. For more information about the luncheon and other Can Do Awards go to https://kidscan.org/get-connected/cando2020.html.
