The Federal Way Wal-Mart store on South 314th Street awarded $50 gift cards to 20 teachers from Mark Twain Elementary School.

The honor was part of the company's Teachers Reward Program. On Oct. 8, Wal-Mart store manager Josh Proctor and Good Works Coordinator Dick Mayer handed out the gift cards — and cupcakes — to teachers selected in a drawing.

"A lot of teachers dig into their own pockets for classroom supplies," said Proctor, noting that the program has contributed $4.5 million total to schools nationwide.
