FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AMARILLO, Texas — On Tuesday, United Supermarkets joins forces with Mrs Baird’s for the ninth year 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 students.
Each month three teachers are recognized as outstanding educators—one from elementary, one teacher from middle school/junior high and one winning teacher from an area high school. Each winning teacher will receive a $100 gift card from United Supermarkets. Each student who nominates a winning teacher will also win a $50 American Express gift card from Mrs Baird’s.
Representatives from United Supermarkets and Mrs Baird’s will be available for photos and interviews at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 1 at the United Supermarkets at 5807 SW 45th, #100.
The entry website for the program can be found here: www.MrsBTeacher.com. For more information on the program and how it recognizes and supports the work of teachers in the community, make your way to the event on Tuesday.
**Please be prepared to wear a mask and social distance during the event. Thank you.**
