Truman Elementary Principal Receives $300 Pay it Forward Award

One Davenport Community School District Principal has just been recognized for her efforts to always give more to her students. On Wednesday, January 8, 2020, Chrissy Willis, Principal at Truman Elementary, was awarded a Pay it Forward award from Ascentra Credit Union that included a $300 donation to use toward improving her school!

Chrissy first started at Truman Elementary as a teacher and when given the opportunity returned as principal. She has always put together innovative ideas. Some including the “KIND wall”, her pride and joy, the Truman Sensory Walk, and now Chrissy has plans to install a rock-climbing wall for her students. She’s always thinking outside the box!

Chrissy stated, “It is an incredible honor to be recognized for the work that I do, and I couldn’t do the things that I do without the amazing support of my family.”

Chrissy was nominated by her mother-in-law, Barbra for the Pay it Forward award. Her whole family also showed up to Truman Elementary to show their support and share the surprise. Chrissy’s work is far from over as she always has new ideas on her mind!
