September Pack the Backpack Winner: Mrs. Engle

Pack the Backpack, presented by Central Office Supply, a division of Minuteman and Kix 101.1! Each month during the school year, we will be awarding $101 to a Kix Country classroom to help out with supplies. We will award the prize on the last Wednesday of the month. You can listen to each new winner at 8:30a on the Morning Kix Start.

Our first winner of the 2021-2022 school year is Mrs. Macy Engle – 3rd Grade Teacher at BCLUW Elementary School. She was nominated by a parent of a student, Jacey Lehman. Here’s what she wrote to Kix 101.1.:

I would like to nominate Mrs. Macy Engle for the Pack the Backpack award. Mrs. Engle teaches 3rd grade at BCLUW, and my daughter is in her class. My daughter has so much enthusiasm and excitement about school this year, and I think it is due to the excitement and enthusiasm Mrs. Engle brings to the classroom each day.

Outfitting a classroom has to be a daunting task–especially when you’re just out of college and starting from scratch. This is Mrs. Engle’s first year teaching, so it would be great to see her win the Pack the Backpack award to help build up the supplies in her classroom.

Thank you for your consideration of Mrs. Engle!
