Making an IMPACT: Twelve-Year-Old Gets Teachers a Raise

Jim Justice signing a bill.
West Virginia Governor Jim Justice gave teachers a raise thanks to Gideon Titus-Glover.

Gideon Titus-Glover is a 12-year-old boy who helped teachers. Teachers in West Virginia were on strike. This means they were not going to work. Nobody could go to school. The teachers wanted more money. The governor of West Virginia did not want to give it to them. Then Gideon spoke with the governor. He convinced the governor to give teachers more money. Everyone got to go back to school. Thanks Gideon!
