On Sunday, May 5, H-E-B announced statewide winners for the 18th annual H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards during an awards ceremony at the Fairmont Hotel in Austin. During the ceremony, Andrea Greimel from SAISD’s Carvajal Early Childhood Education Center won the Lifetime Achievement Award in the Elementary category.
The Lifetime Achievement category salutes teachers with more than 20 years of experience. Winners receive $25,000 in cash for themselves and a $25,000 grant for their school.
Greimel learned she was a finalist for the award in March.
Created in 2002, the H‑E‑B Excellence in Education Awards are designed to honor outstanding public school professionals and to thank them for their dedication and commitment. Through the program, H‑E‑B seeks to pay tribute to those educators who go the extra mile each and every day to serve their students and their communities and who inspire others to do the same.
Teacher Awards are designed to recognize teachers and are based on the teachers’ passion and commitment to the teaching profession, innovation and creativity in the classroom and their professional growth and development.
