 Omer Salazar - Kia Oustanding Educator

 

Bess is excited for custodian, Omer Salazar, who won the Kia Outstanding Educator Award on Thursday, November 21.   Omer exhibits a teamwork attitude each and every day and certainly goes the extra mile to make a significant difference at W.A. Bess Elementary School. Now he can go that extra mile in his new Kia, thanks to Kia of Gastonia!
