LUBBOCK, Texas — The United Family and Mrs Baird’s Bread® announced the December and January winners of the twelfth annual Teachers On The Rise program.

Congratulations to our winners from January: Stacey Williams of Seagraves Elementary (Seagraves ISD), Lesli Hulsey of Ed Irons Middle School (Lubbock ISD), and Corey Butler of Talkington School for Young Women Leaders. (Lubbock ISD).

“We are thrilled for this round of winners,” said Abie Rampy, director of public relations for The United Family. “Teachers serve such a vital purpose in our communities and they are incredibly deserving of recognition. With just a few more months left in the school year, we encourage students to nominate their favorite teachers every month!”

“We know there are many teachers in our classrooms who deserve recognition, and we look forward to receiving many more nominations this spring,” said Shane Sumrow, the director of Teachers On The Rise. “We only have four more months left in the school year to nominate teachers, so we encourage students and families to get their nominations in soon.”
