Honored as one of three statewide finalists in small district category
H-E-B has named Montgomery ISD as a statewide finalist for the Texas-based organization’s 2023 Excellence in Education Awards. MISD is one of three finalists in the small district category, encompassing those with less than 10,000 students enrolled.
H-E-B launched the Excellence in Education Awards in 2002 as a positive way to support education in Texas. Since the program’s inception in 2002, H-E-B has awarded more than $13 million in funding to outstanding Texas teachers, principals, public school districts, school boards, and early childhood facilities.
“Being named as one of three finalists in H-E-B’s Excellence in Education Awards is an incredible honor,” Superintendent Dr. Heath Morrison said. “I am so proud of our amazing educators, dedicated support staff and committed Board of Trustees who are supremely invested in the success of our students. This distinction reflects Montgomery ISD’s commitment to becoming the Premier School District in Texas, achieving the goals set forth in the district’s strategic plan.”
The H-E-B School District Awards recognize school districts based on the following criteria:
- Commitment to student achievement through innovative programs
- Parent/Community involvement
- Professional development opportunities for teachers and administrators
“We are thrilled that Montgomery ISD has been named as a statewide finalist by H-E-B. The Excellence in Education Awards highlight the values that our community has come to expect of our school district.” MISD Board President Matt Fuller said. “We appreciate the tremendous responsibility of educating our children and are united in our commitment to doing our very best to set our students up for success.”
To determine overall statewide winners, a panel of judges will tour campuses and visit with administration, staff, parents, students and community members.
Winners will be announced at the H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards Ceremony on April 30, 2023 in San Antonio.
