Pay It Forward: Marilyn and Larry Coker from Greenville
This week’s Pay It Forward honorees are Marilyn and Larry Coker from Greenville. She and her husband make sure students have what they need to succeed in the classroom.
“She is always a giving person if my class needs tissue, I’m at the backdoor within the next hour or next day her husband is bringing it to me if we need anything. At Christmas, I asked her to sponsor the class with pizza. She sponsors whole three classes with pizza,” said Shari Powell.
Marilyn Coker is a former teacher herself.
And she says she wants to help Shari with her classroom
“It’s just from our hearts. Shari is very special and I’ve taught many of her siblings,” said Coker.
But she not only helps with the Shari’s classroom. The Cokers serve the rest of the community as well.
“She sends meals out to the shut-ins and older people who made need a meal. And her husband cleans the roadway clear where people have thrown out the trash. They are just all around great people,” said Powell.
