The Acme su­per­mar­ket at 3200 Red Li­on Road re­cently honored Christ the King Ele­ment­ary School third-grade teach­er Mary Thur­ston Clark as Teach­er of the Month for Janu­ary.

Sis­ter Trudy Held­er, SSJ, the long­time prin­cip­al at the Mor­rell Park school, al­lowed the stu­dents to nom­in­ate a teach­er, and they chose Clark.

Store dir­ect­or Vick­ie Babst vis­ited the school to present Clark with a $50 Acme gift card and a re­usable bag filled with su­per­mar­ket spe­cialty products. Clark’s stu­dents were treated to a cook­ie party.

Acme re­cently ini­ti­ated the pro­gram at its 116 stores in Pennsylvania, New Jer­sey, Delaware and Mary­land. ••
