Dollar General recognizes Kentucky teacher through its Every Day Heroes program


GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. — Dollar General’s Every Day Heroes program recognizes ordinary people doing extraordinary deeds, and this September, Dollar General, in partnership with Procter & Gamble, will celebrate and honor the nation’s schools and teachers, the discount retailer announced. 

Through their “Success Starts Here” national marketing campaign, including an advertorial in Better Homes & Gardens, the program on Monday recognized Boone County High School in Florence, Ky. and one of its teachers, Kimberly Shearer.

Shearer is a wife and mother, as well as an English teacher at Boone County High School. Her recognition as the Kentucky Teacher of the Year in 2012 is due in part to her strong advocacy of 21st century literacy skills and strengths in teaching students how to evaluate information, collaborate, master technology and to become life-long readers.

In honor of Kimberly Shearer, Dollar General is making a $10,000 donation to Boone County High School to help meet the needs of its diverse student body.

“Kimberly exemplifies the role model teacher by working early mornings and late evenings to ensure her students receive the education she knows they deserve,” stated Todd Vasos, Dollar General’s EVP and chief merchandising officer. “She embodies the Dollar General Every Day Hero through her dedication to her students by preparing them for the future and her students will undoubtedly benefit from her passion for teaching today’s youths.”
