Austin ISD Principal Receives H-E-B Excellence in Education Award

Congratulations to TEPSA member Ben McCormack from St. Elmo Elementary School in Austin ISD for being named the 2022 H-E-B Elementary School Principal!  H-E-B recently announced the statewide award winners at their 20th annual H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards. Winning principals received $10,000 for themselves and a $25,000 grant for their schools.

H-E-B invites teachers, principals, districts, early childhood facilities, and school boards to fill out an application for these awards after having been nominated by their customers, partners (employees) and community members. The applicants are narrowed down to 40 finalists by a team of judges of former winners, administrators, and university and community leaders not affiliated with H-E-B. These finalists are invited to compete on a statewide level for larger cash prizes. A statewide panel of judges conducts a personal interview with each finalist to select eight winners – two principals and six teachers – who receive cash prizes totaling more than $400,000.

TEPSA is proud to partner with H-E-B to recognize excellence in school leadership. Nominations for the 2023 H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards are now open online.

Meet the award recipients at the TEPSA Summer Conference.
