LUBBOCK, Texas -

The Beaumont Foundation honors several educators in our area.

Educators who received the foundation's Newton Excellence in Education Award include: from Frenship ISD Brianne Katilus, at its ninth grade center and Honey Segrist at Bennett Elementary; From Shallowater ISD, Kindrea longway; and from Lubbock ISD, Marti Sides at Parsons Elementary, Elgin Gregg from Smylie Wilson and Kay Geiger from Lubbock High. Each awardee receives a $10,000 bonus from the foundation.

"I hope the teachers will spend this on themselves but in typical teacher fashion sometimes they give back, give it to charity, but we're really grateful for the Beaumont Foundation," Frenship ISD Superintendent Michelle McCord said.

"If we could pay teachers a lot more, we absolutely would because they are worth gold for us, so this is just a great way to honor them and recognize them and retain them in our goodwill, we need them working with our children," Lubbock ISD Superintendent said.

Each teacher is nominated by the school's principals then submitted to the foundation. The Beaumont Foundation suggests each educator is an inspiration to the children of Lubbock county.
