Tanya Dixon, a big-hearted school counselor at Bessemer Elementary School, teamed up with Residence Hall leaders at N.C. A&T State University. The team celebrated the large amount of gift donations they received for deserving elementary school students.

“Our Holiday of Love provides gifts to our Bobcat babies,” said Dixon, who enlisted the university students for assistance. Counselor Dixon works with community partners, individuals and groups, to donate the gifts.
