Armour, makers of portable meal kits and other products, honored an unsung hero when it hosted a school assembly to honor "Great Mom" Elizabeth Duncan in conjunction with the launch of their new campaign.
Duncan, a mother of two, is an Educational Liaison at Chets Creek Elementary located in Jacksonville, Fla. She has spent over 25 years working as a Certified Special Education Teacher and was instrumental in creating two academic resource centers serving children and families.
The learning centers offer a place where children and parents can receive help with school work, learn how to handle peer pressure and bullying, read books and use the latest technology that they may not have access to at home. The centers also offer police-sponsored safety classes, family counseling, financial planning and English classes.
In addition to her work at Chets Creek Elementary school and the learning centers, Duncan has demonstrated time after time to be a great mom to her own daughter, Bailey, who is currently attending college. Duncan recently expanded her responsibilities when she became the legal guardian of Alysia, whom she met at the resource center in the community where she works. Alysia is two-and-a-half years old and a welcome addition to the Duncan family. Today, Duncan works full time at Chets Creek Elementary and is a liaison between the school and the McKenzie Noelle Wilson Foundation where she continues to council children in need.
Duncan was celebrated during an assembly at Chets Creek Elementary in front of her family, friends, co-workers and children of the Portside community. Armour partnered with Winn-Dixie to host the assembly where they presented Duncan with $2,500 in free groceries at Winn-Dixie to reward and celebrate her for being a great mom both at home and in her community.
"Elizabeth Duncan exemplifies the spirit of the Armour 'Great Moms' campaign," said Chuck Gitkin, senior vice president, marketing, Smithfield Foods. "Her work in the community to better the lives of children while raising two daughters reinforces our belief that there are many great moms who deserve to be recognized. We were honored today to celebrate the accomplishments and dedication of Elizabeth and reward her with $2,500 in free groceries at Winn-Dixie. It was a great day to kick off our national campaign."
Armour was pleased to recognize and reward Duncan as part of their "Great Moms" campaign. The campaign is a national program designed to acknowledge, highlight and reward great moms across the country that go above and beyond each day and still take the time to provide their families with great meals. The campaign will include monthly events across the country from April through November to surprise and celebrate unexpected great moms for their extraordinary efforts in their communities and at home.
