Bodden Partners, We Stand with Oklahoma

May 22

On May 20, two Oklahoma schools took a direct hit from the devastating tornado that leveled parts of Moore, Oklahoma. In the days that followed stories started pouring in about the heroic and selfless teachers, support professionals, administrators and school staff who saved the lives of students. Some teachers literally acted as human shields, putting their own lives at risk to protect their students.

Now in the aftermath of the storm, many of these educators find themselves with no school and no home to return to. In an instant, they lost homes and possessions that it took many a lifetime to attain. The nearly 40,000 members of the Oklahoma Education Association is stepping in to help. OEA has set up a special fund for NEA members affected by yesterday’s tornado.

Dennis Van Roekel expressed the sentiments of NEA members across the nation when he said “There are no words to convey our sorrow over the tragic loss that has been suffered by Oklahoma’s families. Our hearts are broken over the students and educators killed in the storm and we commend the educators who put their lives on the line to protect the children in these schools—every single one is a hero who will not be forgotten. We will stand with the families of those lost and injured and the communities suffering as they work to rebuild their homes and their lives.”

Bodden Partners is honored to stand with Oklahoma and support the heroic NEA members affected by this devastating tragedy. Click here to learn more and make a donation: http://oeatornadorelief.eventbrite.com/#
