Executives from the new Tyler retailer Gordmans presented Rice Elementary School with a $2,500 donation at the store's grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony recently. Gordmans is in The Village at Cumberland Park.
Executive Store Manager Cindy Spink said with each grand opening event, Gordmans selects a local school to receive the partnership donation. Sales associates from the Tyler location chose Rice Elementary through a voting process.
Rice Elementary School Principal Shelly Bosley said she plans to use the funds to purchase instructional materials for her teachers.
