Randall Reed, owner of Randall Reed’s Planet Ford in Humble, along with Chuck Kramer, GM/OP, are thrilled to honor Charlie Duke, Humble ISD’s 2013-2014 District Teacher of the Year. Mr. Reed and the Planet Ford in Humble team presented Mr. Duke with a brand new 2014 Ford vehicle!
For the 2nd year in a row, Planet Ford has awarded an all-new Ford Escape or a sporty Ford Fusion to a much-deserving teacher. The Reed Family also awarded a resort vacation in Sedona to Lisa Guin. She was the runner-up for Teacher of the Year. Her prize pack comes complete with airfare and lodging in an exclusive, private villa.
Mr. Duke was 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.”
Last year, the Reed’s and Planet Ford honored Ms. Joanna Grisby (pictured left), 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 were 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.
