Sharpie gives $10,000 to Signature Mom winner’s school

Sharpie has announced the winner of its 2006 Signature Mom contest. Kay Pugh, a teacher at Palmyra High School (Mo.), was chosen after her daughter, a teacher at the same school, wrote an essay describing Pugh’s commitment to family and teaching. Sharpie will donate $10,000 in school supplies and funds to Palmyra High School. The funds come from Sharpie’s annual Autographs for Education program, which seeks to collect one million signatures in exchange for $1 million in school supplies and funds, including college scholarships.
