Teachers on the Rise for February

LUBBOCK, Texas — The United Family and Mrs Baird’s Bread® announced the February winners of the twelfth 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 how their teacher(s) go above and beyond the call of duty and why they deserve special recognition.

Congratulations to our February winners: Ashleigh Hoffman of Roosevelt Elementary (Roosevelt ISD), Veronica Booker of Evans Middle School (Lubbock ISD), and Gretchen McKinney of Monterey High School (Lubbock ISD).

“We are thrilled for this round of winners,” said Abie Rampy, director of public relations for The United Family. “Teachers serve a vital purpose in our communities and deserve recognition. With just three more months left in the school year, we encourage students to nominate their favorite teachers every month!”

“We know there are many teachers in our classrooms who deserve recognition, and we look forward to receiving many more nominations this spring,” said Shane Sumrow, the director of Teachers On The Rise. “We only have three more months left in the school year to nominate teachers, so we encourage students and families to get their nominations soon.”

Winning teachers receive a $100 United Supermarkets gift card, lunch for two at the Texas Tech Club, and a gift box full of Mrs Baird’s goodies. Students who nominate a winning teacher also receive a $50 American Express gift card. Teachers On The Rise is sponsored by the Texas Tech Club.
