Bojangles’ presented hundreds of books to school district teachers of the year in South Carolina last week, including Kershaw County School District Teacher of the Year Helen Walker.

The donation was one of 16 planned for this year, and is part of Bojangles’ ongoing partnership with South Carolina Future Minds, which is designed to support teachers across the state who make a positive impact on their students and the future of South Carolina through their commitment to education. 

Walker, who is a top five finalist for the title of South Carolina Teacher of the Year, has been a teacher for 18 years and currently teaches music at Doby’s Mill Elementary School in Lugoff. She earned her bachelor’s degree in England and has earned a Master’s Degree in Instructional Accommodations from Francis Marion University as well as her National Board Certification in elementary general music. 

Prior to the book donation, Walker’s choral students at Doby’s Mill serenaded the guests with a rendition of “Carolina in the Morning,” with the lyrics “nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina at Bojangles.’”

“Bojangles’ is proud to continue its support of education in the Palmetto State,” said Bojangles’ President and CEO Randy Kibler. “Partnering with South Carolina Future Minds and the Teacher of the Year program for the third consecutive year gives us the opportunity to thank South Carolina’s outstanding teachers for their dedication to the nearly 700,000 students currently enrolled in the public education system.”

This year Bojangles’ will donate nearly 3,000 books in honor of district teachers of the year, and since 2010 the company has donated more than 9,000 books to public schools across the state. In addition, Bojangles’ treated the teachers as well as their colleagues, friends, family and students to Bojangles’ chicken, biscuits, side dishes, tea and sweets.
