On Wednesday Feb. 20, three of them were surprised during school assemblies by Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian Gottardy, members of the Executive Staff, H-E-B representatives and family members.

Dr. Mary Longloy, principal at Redland Oaks Elementary School, and Dr. Barry Lanford, principal at Lopez Middle School were honored with a check for $1,000 for themselves and $2,500 for their schools. Both credit the students and their leadership teams for their success.

Kristen Guerra, teacher at Tejeda Middle School, and Steve Davidson, teacher at MacArthur High School, were also honored with a check for $1,000 for themselves and $2,500 for their schools. Mr. Davidson was surprised in his classroom on Thursday, Feb. 21.

They will now compete on a statewide level for larger cash prizes. H-E-B’s Excellence in Education is the largest monetary awards program for educators in Texas, and among the largest in the nation.
