Inga Atkinson, "Favorite Catholic School Teacher"

Holy Family School’s Inga Atkinson named Divine Mercy Radio’s

Favorite Catholic School Teacher

Divine Mercy Radio’s contest has named Inga Atkinson of Holy Family Catholic School in Great Bend “Favorite Catholic School Teacher.”

Votes were cast by staff and friends from Catholic schools along the radio station’s listening area, which stretches from Hays to Great Bend and all the surrounding communities.

Leslie Unrein, Assistant Director and Underwriting Representative for Divine Mercy Radio, released some snippets from a few of the comments that were received during the voting process. The names of the voters were not included:

  • “Ms. Inga Atkinson! She is fabulous with all her students and sparks interest in education at a young age.”
  • “Our granddaughters have [Mrs. Atkinson] for Pre-K and absolutely love her.”
  • “Mrs. Inga Atkinson at Holy Family School in Great Bend. Actually, she is one of all time favorites at this location.”
  • “(Mrs. Inga Atkinson) She is BEYOND amazing! She has taught all three of my boys, and I have never met anyone like her. She genuinely loves each and every child who comes into her room, and treats them just like her own kids. She is gentle, soft-spoken, and has a heart of gold. Her love of God shines through her heart and into her teaching. I wish every child had the opportunity to be in her classroom—every student deserves to be loved like she loves her kiddos! She, without a doubt, deserves to win this contest. She has taught for many, many years and has affected so many lives in the Great Bend area.”

Atkinson received a Certificate of Excellence and a $50 gift card for “An American Bistro” in Great Bend.
