YOUR TURN: Going above and beyond

The economy is the subject of this week's "Your Turn" segment. Stephanie Pugh is on the staff at Woodland Presbyterian School in Memphis. She says she and her coworkers are volunteering to forgo their raises this year.

In her words:

"Talk about going above and beyond, Woodland Presbyterian School's faculty and staff have agreed to not take a pay increase for the upcoming school year.  In a unanimous vote, they agreed that it was more important to help out the parents of Woodland than it was to increase their own pay. Many parents are writing in to the school to express their appreciation and the same message is said over and over, "I am not surprised because that is Woodland." I am personally honored to be a part of this organization and surrounded by teachers who are so devoted to their students."

That's Stephanie Pugh's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email or call 800-465-1210.
