Rack Room Shoes formally presented Legacy Middle School with a $10,000 technology gift and a $500 Rack Room Shoes gift card to dance teacher Jasmine Henry. Henry was named one of five winners of Rack Room Shoes’ nationwide Teacher of the Year Contest. Mrs. Henry choreographed a short dance for her students to perform, celebrate and commemorate the special event. 

Ms. Henry cheers while holding oversized check over her head“I humbly and graciously feel so blessed to be recognized and valued as an important person in my students’ lives,” said Henry. “It’s an honor to know my fellow educators, students, and family support the arts and view it as an important core curriculum.”

In addition to purchasing new equipment, such as wireless microphones and sound systems for the gymnasium and stage areas, the award money will go towards improving sound technology in the cafetorium which hosts arts programs, conferences, celebratory breakfasts, lunches and more. 

According to Principal Jason Jimenez, Mrs. Henry is a phenomenal teacher who takes great pride in her craft, providing students with various dance styles and techniques and infusing instruction with a genuine passion for the arts.

“This award recognizes what we already know about Mrs. Henry and the talent and effort that she puts into her craft with her amazing students,” said Principal Jimenez.
