If there is any program we offer that could testify to the true power of social media it might just come in the form of our Teacher SWAG Bags. For a number of years now Central teaching alumni could call our office and request a bag of promotional materials for their classrooms.
In years past we might receive a dozen SWAG Bag requests. However, that all changed this August when a request form went up on our website and the link was pushed out via social media. Within a few short weeks we were inundated with over 1200 requests from enthusiastic teachers eager to tell their Central stories!
Needless to say we were incredibly excited about this response, and through a collaborative university wide effort we were able to deliver a SWAG Bag to each of the teachers who had requested one.
Meghan Perry an Elementary School Teacher in the Chelan School District was excited to have a Teacher SWAG Bag to help support the College Bound Program in her class this year.
“They [the students] especially love the posters and the pencils. Thanks so much for taking the time to make it extra special for them. There may be some future Wildcats in this class.” -Meghan Perry
Stay tuned as we continue to work with our campus partners to develop a long term plan for the program. We hope to make this offer available again soon so that even more of our teaching alumni will have the opportunity to share their Wildcat Pride with the students, staff, and faculty in their schools.
