1+1 Giveaway – Kristi Tlustos

KristitlustosRAPID CITY, S.D. – This school year has seen it’s ups and downs and teachers continue to look for solutions to help their students day to day. When they need a boost, that’s where NewsCenter1 and First Interstate Bank come in, with the “1+1 $500 Giveaway.”

This week’s winner is a Literacy teacher and Intervention Specialist from Knollwood Heights Elementary, Kristi Tlustos, who plans to use the funds to enhance the reading program for on-site and virtual learning.

“It’s been so different with virtual learning, so just knowing that I have some extra funds…the sky is kind of the limit right now with the things that we’re doing. I have no idea right now, I’m just shocked! We definitely just need anything to make things more interactive online,” said Tlustos.
