On April 9, 2022, Raelyn Harman, President of Teachers’ Teammates, was honored by the Delaware County Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) at a luncheon celebrating Women in American History.
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women’s service organization founded in 1890 by a small group of patriotic women. The DAR is dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America’s future through better education for children.
“Teachers’ Teammates gives the community an opportunity to SOLVE the problem of insufficient school supplies AND improve stewardship of resources in our community”
The award citation from NSDAR reads (in part):
“Raelyn thank you for sharing your dream, your vision, and your journey to provide support for our front-line workers in the Delaware County Educational System.
Last month, we celebrated Women’s History Month, a time to recognize the extraordinary achievements of American women…
We, the Daughters of the American Revolution recognize you, Raelyn Harman, as one of these outstanding women who, witnessed the inequities o school supplies for the children and teachers in the school systems and did something about it. We honor you today as an extraordinary woman making a difference in our history…
Not only did you empower the front-line teachers, but you also reinforced the idea of recycling, reimagining, repurposing and reusing materials that typically would have ended up in our landfills. This is a win-win innovative program.”
