Bartholomew Consolidated School Foundation shares gratitude for BCSC employees

COLUMBUS, Ind. — “A good, old-fashioned thank-you note goes a long way.”

These words, said by Community Development Coordinator Angie Emmitt, are a good summary of the thinking behind the Bartholomew Consolidated School Foundation’s “Grateful and Thankful” campaign, which aims to send messages of gratitude to almost 2,000 individuals who work in the school district.

Emmitt and BCSF director Suzi Bruin began delivering thank-you cards to the staff of the Bartholomew Consolidated School Corp. on Monday. Bruin said ahead of time that they planned to deliver cards to about 1,800 people employed by the school corporation, as well as school resource officers.

“We want to make sure that everyone in the school corporation, regardless of their title or their role, knows that they are making an impact on a child,” Bruin said. “So we want to recognize them.”

Each individual will receive a handwritten note of gratitude, a card for a free drink at Lucabe Coffee Co. and a piece of “gratitude art.”
