Arvest Bank awards Walters educator $500

WALTERS, OK (KSWO)- A local educator is being recognized for her dedication in the classroom. This afternoon, Arvest Bank awarded her $500.

It's all part of Arvest's 'We Heart Oklahoma Teachers' campaign.  Educators from all across the state were nominated.  Arvest then chose 33 to get $500 each.

From Walters Elementary School, music educator Denise Tulloh was selected. She was chosen last year too. She used that money to replace the carpet in her classroom.  This year, she's wanting something more tangible:

“I would love to get a classroom full of buckets. Bucket drumming is a new big thing and I would like to try some buckets and some drum sticks. So, I think that's the direction we're going to go-- something the kids can actually put their hands on and play.”

Arvest says it wants to take a moment to recognize all educators do for the community and the children.
