11Alive morning team gives teachers 'Our Favorite Things'

ATLANTA -- 11Alive's morning team rolled out the red carpet Monday morning to honor Metro Atlanta's "Class Act" teachers. The 31 men and women were nominated by their peers and students for special recognition for their committment to their classes and students.

On Monday, the 31 educators, their principals and some family and friends joined the 11Alive morning team as a live studio audience.

For a Random Act of Kindness, they all received some of our anchors' favorite things:

From Chesley and Men's Warehouse: a stylish matching tie and pocket square.

From Karyn and Spa Sydell: a gift certificate for much-deserved pampering.

Walmart is increasing their competitive checks to offer lower prices on many items. They’re also partnering with different suppliers to lower the cost per item on many of their items.

In additon to those changes, the company is bringing back its “Ad Match” policy, making it easier for customers to actually see their savings.

Downtown Covington at Glance

Downtown Covington combines the very best of the old and the new. A remarkable mix of Victorian architecture defines the downtown district and the tree filled square park is the site for many of Covington’s signature events.

It is a downtown like it used to be, where the storeowners are your neighbors, and they treat you like one.
