Randall and Sherry Reed, owner’s of Randall Reed’s Planet Ford in Humble, couldn’t be more excited to honor Humble ISD’s 2013-2014 District Teacher of the Year with a brand new 2014 Ford vehicle! For the second year in a row, Planet Ford will award an all-new 2014 Ford Escape or a sporty 2014 Ford Fusion to the winner of this year’s award. The Reed Family is also awarding a resort vacation in Sedona to the runner-up, complete with airfare and lodging in an exclusive, private villa.
The teacher receiving the new Ford has been selected from the top 10 nominees from among those selected by their campuses as Teacher of the Year for 2013-2014. The Reed’s and Planet Ford in Humble believe teachers to be an invaluable resource for local communities and are thrilled to be able to honor these heroes. “We believe contributing to the future of our children and community is crucial,” said Randall Reed. “One of the biggest factors for both are the educators who teach and help raise the children who will define our future.”
Take a look at the highlights from last year’s event below.
Last year, the Reed’s and Planet Ford honored Ms. Joanna Grisby, an Elm Grove Elementary fifth-grade teacher, at the Humble ISD Education Foundation Gala by awarding her the option between a Fusion or an Escape. With these two great options, it was tough for Ms. Grisby to decide, but she ultimately opted for the efficient-yet-spacious Escape. Mr. Chuck Kramer, General Manager/Operating Partner at Planet Ford in Humble, noted, “There is no one that is more deserving of such an honor. We are just happy to be able to help recognize all of their never-ending efforts.”
Friday, April 4th, 10 finalists for District Teacher of the Year are honored at the Humble ISD Education Foundation Gala held at the Humble Civic Center. During the Gala, the Elementary and/or Secondary Teacher of the Year is named, and the District Teacher of the Year is named. Both will represent Humble ISD in the Region 4 Teacher of the Year Contest.
