Coburn Teacher Celebrated on Good Morning America

W.S. Middle School & Greenfield's Newton School Participated

Post Date:09/17/2019 1:33 PM

ABC’s Good Morning America featured a live segment about DonorsChoose at Coburn School on Friday, September 13, 2019 at 8:20 a.m.  More than 1,000 students representing Coburn and West Springfield Middle School, as well as administration and staff from both schools, participated in the segment about DonorsChoose and Coburn teacher Jami Witherell’s involvement with this crowdfunding platform.  Ms. Witherell is in the top 1% of DonorsChoose fundraisers!

 A bus full of students and staff from Ms. Witherell’s former school (Newton School in Greenfield, MA) surprised her by attending the celebration, and Ms. Witherell's mother also was there to add to the surprise.  DonorsChoose was there to donate $15,000 to both Coburn School and Newton School!  This event truly was a team effort by numerous district and Town departments in collaboration with Good Morning America - and it showcased a collective ‘We Are One’ spirit.  WSPS teachers are encouraged to submit requests to DonorsChoose, as this national attention could result in increased exposure for WSPS projects, and therefore potential funding!
