To recognize the entrepreneurial spirit driving teachers to meet their students' distance learning needs during this difficult time, SONIC Drive-In matched all donations to Donors Choose on Teacher Appreciation Day, giving Kathy Conway from Osborne $114.  

Through Limeades for Learning, SONIC donated $1 million to public school teacher requests across the country on Teacher Appreciation Day - Tues., May 5, 2020 - supporting their endeavors to provide students with essential education resources.  

Kathy Conway at Osborne Elementary School was among the exceptional teachers whose project received funding, including "The Music Show Must Go On."

"Teachers across the country face new and complex challenges to keep their students learning right now," said Christi Woodworth, vice president for public relations for SONIC.  "As we continue to celebrate teachers this Teacher Appreciation Month, we sincerely thank educators like Kathy Conway, who are creatively keeping their students learning even as schools are closed.  With SONICS's $1 million donation match, we were able to help teachers obtain resources for their students and will continue to empower them throughout the year."
