United Supermarkets & Mrs Baird’s Bread honor three Lubbock area teachers
LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - The United Family and Mrs. Baird’s Bread® announced the March winners of the tenth annual Teachers On The Rise program.
Since the program launched at the beginning of the school year, nominations have poured in from students and families across the South Plains, explaining the ways their teacher(s) go above and beyond the call of duty and why they deserve special recognition.
Congratulations to the winners from March: Maria Gregory of Jose Ramirez Elementary (LISD), Jenee Jones of the Rise Academy (Charter School), and Lenzi Hart of Shallowater High School (Shallowater ISD).
“We want to congratulate all of our teachers and students who were a part of this round of winners,” said Nancy Sharp, Corporate Engagement Director for The United Family. “There are so many teachers who are deserving of recognition in our communities. We encourage everyone to keep nominating!”
“This has been a tremendous year for the Teachers On The Rise program,” said Shane Sumrow, the program’s director. “Through these nominations, we have heard countless testimonials about the great things teachers are doing in our classrooms. We select three winners every month, so we encourage students to re-enter their teachers if they didn’t win and try to be as detailed as possible on why teachers deserve special recognition.”
Winning teachers receive a $100 United Supermarkets gift card, lunch for two to the Texas Tech Club, and a gift box full of Mrs. Baird’s goodies. The students who nominate a winning teacher also receive a $50 American Express gift card.
