The power of one teacher in Webster City, Iowa

Educators nurture our tomorrow. Educators like Dawn Scholtens inspire a much better tomorrow – despite the odds against her.

The “Sunset Stinkers” are a second-grade group who have participated in Shower Strike for the past six years. In April 2018, the Well Aware team traveled to Webster City, Iowa, to visit these students and award the teacher who first got the school involved in Shower Strike with an Award. Meet the woman who has been determined to see that the children of a small town know that, despite their own circumstances, THEY have the power to change the world.

Dawn Scholten is a truly inspirational woman who has helped shape students’ lives and minds for the better.

Thank you, Dawn, and thank you, Sunset Stinkers!
