United Supermarkets & Mrs Baird’s Bread honor three Amarillo area teachers as Teachers on the Rise for October
AMARILLO, Texas — The United Family and Mrs Baird’s Bread® announced the October winners of the eleventh annual Teachers On The Rise program. To help kick off the program this year, nominations have poured in from students and families across the High Plains explaining the ways their teacher(s) go above and beyond the call of duty and why they deserve special recognition.
Congratulations to our winners from October: Stacy Stewart of Wolflin Elementary School (Amarillo ISD), Karmin Vasquez of Fannin Middle School (Amarillo ISD), and Becca Barkley of Randall High School (Canyon ISD).
“We are thrilled for this round of winners,” said Abie Rampy, director of public relations for The United Family. “Teachers serve such a vital purpose in our communities and they are incredibly deserving of recognition. With the majority of the year ahead of us, we encourage students to nominate their favorite teachers every month!”
“This has been a tremendous start for the Teachers On The Rise program so far,” said Shane Sumrow, the program’s director. “Through these nominations, we have already 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, a $100 American Express gift card from Tyler’s Barbecue in Amarillo, a $100 Amazon gift card from Horse Creek Boutique in Spearman for classroom supplies, and a gift basket full of Mrs Baird’s goodies. The students who nominate a winning teacher also receive a $50 American Express gift card. Teachers On The Rise is also sponsored by Kids Incorporated which hosts the program’s year-end banquet.
