This is Upsilon Lambda Lambda Chapter’s second year, in carrying out the mission of it’s Samurai Fatherhood & Mentoring Program – “provide uplift and support to educators and youth in the local community”.

As teachers prepare to close out the current school year, the Brothers of Upsilon Lambda Lambda Chapter were glad to provide a small token of appreciation to the four outstanding educators who go over and beyond in meeting the educational needs of our youth each day.

In 1985, the National Parent Teacher Association established Teacher Appreciation Week as the first full week of May.
