DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — With the Christmas break quickly approaching for Dothan City Schools, some teachers had the opportunity to savor an early Christmas feast.

Cherry and Irwin Law Firm and Longhorn Steakhouse partnered together to provide a free lunch for the teachers at Dothan Preparatory Academy.

Teachers were able to hang out with their co-workers and also get in some funny Christmas photos.

This event was put on as a way to show appreciation for teachers at Dothan Prep.

“Teachers are leaving the profession at an all-time high all over this nation,” Principal at Dothan Prep James Williams said. “It’s the small things that make them know that we appreciate them, that we love them, and that their work does not go unnoticed.”

The Cherry and Irwin Law Firm say that they hope the teachers received a little bit of holiday cheer from today’s lunch.
