JAMESTOWN – Two longtime supporters of Jamestown Public School were recently honored for their work within the district.
Kimberly S. Foster and Lauren E. Proctor’s names were added to a list of 12 commemorated for their work at Fletcher Elementary School.
School officials note Foster’s work raising money for the playground and UPK students.
“Mrs. Foster wanted all of us to know that life is scary, but don’t ever let that stop you, and always trust you’ve got what it takes to get through anything,” said Jennifer Schrader, a teacher with the district. “If she were here, she would want each of us to be kind, choose optimism, and take time for each and every person you encounter. Mrs. Foster proved how much that mattered.”
School officials said Proctor, a 2012 Jamestown High School graduate, has worked as a substitute teacher within the building covering all grade levels and special areas when needed.
“Lauren was my student at Rogers Elementary School and she was also a substitute teacher for me at Fletcher,” said Lisa Certo-Card, another teacher with the district. “How lucky I was to have her both as a student and a friend. In both of these roles, she had the most positive attitude, never complaining and always doing whatever needed to be done.”
