PRESENT FOR a recent donation at Taylor Elementary School, from left, were Tennessee Chapter O president Brenda Perkinson, instructional coach Traci Blackburn, school principal Elizabeth Kaylor, and chapter leaders Becky and Richard Griffin.
Tennessee Chapter O, the Cleveland division of the Tennessee Gold Wing Road Riders Association, recently collaborated with Traci Blackburn, Instructional Coach at Taylor Elementary School, to present school supplies to the Taylor faculty and staff.

“We have selected Taylor Elementary for adoption because it is one of the smallest schools in the Bradley County School System. It might have been easier just to give a dollar donation to a large charity, but by personally selecting school supplies and instructional tools for the teachers and students of Taylor Elementary, we have the satisfaction of knowing our support fills a need in our local community,” Tennessee Chapter O dorector Brenda Perkinson said.

Elizabeth Kaylor, principal of Taylor Elementary, expressed her appreciation for the donations.

“Teachers were especially excited to receive presentation clickers for their interactive whiteboards because it will have a direct impact on the way they can use technology to deliver instruction,” Kaylor said. “Chapter O has also provided us with many of the traditional school supplies we use on a daily basis. We are truly grateful to be adopted by such a generous group.”

The Gold Wing Road Riders Association is the world's largest single-marquee social organization for owners and riders of Honda Gold Wing/Valkyrie motorcycles. Founded in 1977, GWRRA has grown to more than 72,000 U.S., Canadian, and international members in 53 foreign countries in just 35 years. More than 800 active chapters are managed by 4,000 volunteer leaders working with members to foster safe, enjoyable riding while also working to improve the public image of motorcycling.
