Washington Elementary School, Alva

The Alva Mentoring Program at Washington Elementary School has selected Gerald Haltom, a retired electronics repairman, as its outstanding mentor for recognition at Oklahoma Mentor Day.

Gerald has been serving as a mentor and reading with first-graders at Washington Elementary School for more than 10 years. Most recently, he has been paired with Isaac, a first-grader. 

“During the years that I have worked with the mentoring program at the school, Mr. Haltom has been one of the first to volunteer each year,” said Terri Parson, media specialist assistant at Washington Elementary.

“The mentees get to know Mr. Haltom and love him! He brings a smile to everyone he sees,” Terri said.
