Rent One Honors Educators with Teacher Appreciation Contest

Rent One surprised Kindergarten teacher Mrs. Webster as the winner of the company’s teacher appreciation contest.

St. Louis-based Rent One recently surprised Mrs. Webster, a Kindergarten teacher at Westarn Elementary School in Huntsville, Missouri, announcing them winners of the company’s “Nominate a Teacher You Love,” contest. Webster received a Rent One Teacher’s Appreciation plaque, balloons, a $250 cash prize and apples for her students.

In August, Rent One solicited entries for the contest, asking Facebook followers to nominate their favorite teacher by submitting a short video why. Webster was nominated by Rent One’s Store Manager Sierra Garrett from Macon, Missouri, whose daughter is a student of hers.

Rent One’s Marketing Manager Owen Pye and Garrett, along with a videographer, surprised Webster at her school. Click here to view the visit.

“We are planning to do this again quarterly, and will most likely open it up to other role models out there like Veterans, Police Officers, Firefighters and Public Servants,” says Pye.
