May 15, 2023 - Bryson Administration thanked all volunteers by hosting an annual Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast. From helping with PTA events, being involved in the SIC, mentoring students, coaching Run Hard, or covering lunches for staff there are always ways to help at BES that directly assist our Bears. We are so very thankful for everyone that contributes their time each year.

BES Staff vote annually on the Volunteer of the Year, and this year there was no surprise that it was awarded to Carissa Sanders!

She is our Santa Shop Chair and made this event such an incredible experience for our Bears! She worked on finding deals all year long to provide an assortment of gifts for each and every family member. It was a joy to watch so many Bears be able to thoughtfully pick out items for their loved ones!

Carissa also volunteers and coordinates ways to support our Bears with the Fountain Inn HUB. From arranging school supplies to catering meals, she has helped so many with her work through this organization.

She comes in every week to help in each of her Bears’ classrooms - whether it’s covering lunch duty, helping in centers, or working on 4th grade math, she juggles it all and does so with kindness and love. If you look up “servant’s heart” in the dictionary, you’ll see a picture of her. We are so very thankful for her time and devotion as well as the entire Sanders Crew!
