United Supermarkets partners with Mrs Baird’s to kickoff 12th annual Teachers on the Rise program

LUBBOCK, Texas — For the 12th year, United Supermarkets and Mrs Baird’s will join forces to celebrate the beginning of the Teachers on the Rise program — an effort by the two companies to recognize local teachers nominated for their work by their students. A kick-off event for this year’s program will take place on Wednesday, August 16 at United Supermarkets (2703 82nd Street) at 3:30 p.m.

Over the past decade, thousands of nominations have poured in and hundreds of teachers have been recognized for the hard work they put in for their students each day. To celebrate the kick-off, Mrs Baird’s will join United Supermarkets to hand out some back-to-school treats along with nomination information.

Every month during the school year, the program recognizes three teachers — one from an elementary school, one from a middle school/junior high and one from a high school. Teachers and students have the opportunity to win prizes each month. The entry website can be found here: www.MrsBTeacher.com.

There will be interview and photo opportunities for attending media.
