Meet our 2020 Can Do Award Recipients:

Can Do Educator - Dominique Beverly

We are excited to announce our newest award, the Can Do Educator, to honor Dominique Beverly, a teacher and support coach at Miller Park Elementary. According to Site Director, Tishara Wardlow, “Ms. Beverly is the link between our program and the school system, she is a role model, parent figure, and advocate for our after-school program.”


The award is sponsored by Oxbow Animal Health. “Oxbow is thrilled to sponsor this new award, honoring a local educator who has made a difference within their school and in support of Kids Can programs.  Oxbow admires and supports local educators who invite curiosity, guide learning, spark imagination, and nurture self-esteem in the youngest members of our community,” said Deborah Buhro, CEO, Oxbow Animal Health.
