VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - A south Georgia teacher is benefiting from a major retailer's effort to help educators who spend their own money on their students.

Valdosta OfficeMax workers made a special delivery to Lake Park Elementary Tuesday.

They surprised first grade teacher Holly Reid with flowers, a printer, and a box full supplies.

Administrators say Reid shows passion, innovation, and dedication in the classroom , three requirements needed to qualify for the store's "A day made better" campaign.

"I am just so shocked," said Holly Reid, award recipient. "I feel so special. I'm so tickled to have all this stuff."

"All of our teachers go above and beyond, I mean they're always spending their money," said Julie Klein, Lake Park Elementary Assistant Principal. " But Ms. Reid seems to go that one extra step for her students."

OfficeMax delivered $1,000 worth of supplies to 1,000 schools around the country on Tuesday.
