This past Thursday, two Spring ISD teachers received the surprise of a lifetime at the Spring ISD Employee Recognition Banquet. Planet Ford in Spring attended the event to honor the top two educators in Spring ISD, awarding one a brand new Ford vehicle and the other an all-inclusive Caribbean cruise for two!
It was an unforgettable evening at this year’s Spring ISD Employee Recognition Banquet, as two teachers were honored as the district’s Elementary and Secondary Teachers of the Year. Robert Silvy was handed the keys to a brand new Ford car or SUV donated by Randall and Sherry Reed and Planet Ford on I-45. “I’m speechless,” said Mr. Silvy. “These things just don’t happen. I can’t believe it. Thank you Randall and Sherry Reed and Planet Ford!”
Tamia McEwen was awarded a Carnival Preferred Awards Plus all-expense paid cruise for two to the Bahamas, also provided by the Reed Family and Planet Ford. “I can’t believe it,” said Ms. McEwen. “I can’t thank you all enough. Oh my gosh, I’m going to the Bahamas!” Planet Ford is proud to be a part of such a great community with great educators and truly values the importance of these community leaders.
“Teachers really are at the heart of our communities,” said Randall Reed, owner of Planet Ford. “They not only educate, they help mold our children’s lives and have a real impact on our future. We are thrilled to be able to recognize their outstanding lifetime work with a gift such as a new Ford or a much-deserved getaway.”
Shawn Burns, General Manager and Operating Partner of Planet Ford in Spring agrees. “There isn’t enough we can do to celebrate and thank the teachers in our community. We are really looking forward to surprising these amazing educators and handing over their well-earned prizes.”
The Spring ISD Employee Recognition Banquet took place Thursday, May 1st, at the Hilton North Houston. Complete with great food, lively entertainment and interesting people, the event was a huge success as everyone enjoyed the build-up to the main event. Media personnel were on hand to capture the experience and get some interviews before the big announcement was made on stage.
Spring ISD’s Teacher of the Year program recognizes outstanding educators for their passion and commitment to excellence in education. Each Spring ISD school selects their campus Teacher of the Year, who are invited to submit written materials to be considered as a finalist for the district’s Teacher of the Year. A selection committee chooses an Elementary and a Secondary Teacher of the Year to represent the district. They will be introduced in a surprise announcement at the banquet May 1st.
