Vogel Alcove is one of five Early Childhood Centers named as finalists in the 16th Annual H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards. Each finalist receives $5,000. In addition to Early Childhood Centers, H-E-B also selected eight school districts and five school boards as awards finalists.
To determine overall statewide winners, a panel of judges will visit each district, early childhood facility and school board, tour campuses and talk with administration, staff, parents and community members. The winners will be announced on May 7, and the winning early childhood facility will receive $25,000.
H-E-B launched the Excellence in Education Awards program in cooperation with the Texas Association of School Administrators in 2002 as a positive way to support public education in Texas. It has become the largest monetary program for educators in the state, spotlighting best practices and celebrating the passion and creativity of Texas educators.
Vogel Alcove is honored to be selected as a finalist for this prestigious award and grateful for the opportunity to demonstrate our best-practices programs for children who are experiencing trauma.
