For the ninth year, United Supermarkets & Mrs Baird’s team up for Teachers on the Rise program
LUBBOCK, Texas -
On Thursday, United Supermarkets joined forces with Mrs Baird's for the ninth year to celebrate the beginning of the Teachers on the Rise Program - an effort by the two companies to recognize local teachers nominated for their work by students.
Shan Sumrow, a representative for Mrs Baird's, says they are excited to see and hear all of the great ways teachers on the South Plains are going above-and-beyond to impact their student .
"Mrs Baird's is proud to continue our partnership with United Supermarkets for out ninth year for Teachers on the Rise," Sumrow said. "Both companies were founded in Texas more than a century ago and honoring teachers is a way to give back to our communities who have given so much to us over the years."
Each month three teachers are recognized as outstanding educators - one from elementary, one teacher from middle school/junior high and one winning teacher from an area high school. Each winning teacher will receive a $100 gift card from United Supermarkets and lunch for two to the Texas Tech Club. Each student who nominates a winning teacher will also win a $50 American Express gift card from Mrs Baird's.
In addition, as part of a back-to-school promotion, all nominations received by the end of September will be entered into a drawing for additional gift cards, free Mrs Baird's bread for a year and a gift bag from United Supermarkets.
