While the annual H.E.B. Excellence in Education Awards were put on hold due to the pandemic, the grocery giant opted to expand on the recognition program with a statewide Texas Loves Teachers bus tour. During the tour, H.E.B. is visiting 50 school districts and early childhood education centers within 50 days - and is giving away $20,000 in H.E.B. gift cards each week.
The tour included a recent stop at Lyndon B. Johnson High School (LBJHS), thanks to innumerable nominations from our community at H.E.B.’s texaslovesteachers.
After the tour, H.E.B plans to give away $100,000 in cash prizes to educators throughout Texas during a virtual tribute gala on May 8. The traditional H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards will return in 2022, celebrating 20 years of impact. Since its inception in 2002, the Excellence in Education Awards program has awarded more than $13 million in grants and prizes.
