Unity Center honors teachers with tea

CLEVELAND, Tenn. (April 8, 2015) -- Unity Center students were given a rare opportunity to spend time with their teachers outside of the classroom as the after-school program hosted its annual Teacher Tea.

Tuesday marked the 15th year for the event where students and teachers share hot tea from porcelain teapots, while snacking on pastries and chocolate-covered strawberries.

Event organizers were especially pleased this year as 214 school-personnel guests split between the program's two buildings. Students from eight elementary schools, three middle schools, and two high schools had school personnel attend the event.

"We are so happy to host you this afternoon. Your students have been as excited as you have been awaiting this day," said Mary Reynolds, Unity Center assistant director of programs, to the teachers present.

Unity Center is a ministry of Broad Street United Methodist Church in Cleveland.
