Aldine ISD wins H-E-B’s Excellence in Education Award

Aldine ISD was named the winner of H-E-B’s Excellence in Education Award. The announcement was made on Sunday, May 4, at an awards celebration held at The Woodlands Conference and Convention Center.
By being named the winner in the large school district category, Aldine ISD was awarded $100,000 from H-E-B.
“This is a tremendous honor and we are so thankful to H-E-B for the generous contribution they have made to our district,” said Aldine ISD Superintendent Dr. Wanda Bamberg. “This award will be shared by our entire team, from our board members, to our administrators, teachers, support staff, parents and especially our students. This award validates the hard work of Aldine staff to produce the Nation’s Best! This has been an incredible experience for us. All school districts in Texas work really hard for their students, and we want to do right for our students as well.”

Aldine ISD competed in the large school district category with Aransas County ISD (Rockport), Kerrville ISD, McAllen ISD and Round Rock ISD. Aldine and the four other finalists were chosen for their commitment to Texas children and their communities. The H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards is the state’s largest monetary recognition program for Texas educators.
The Excellence in Education Award highlights the great things going on in Texas public schools, to spotlight best practices and to celebrate the work of Texas educators.
Officials from H-E-B conducted a site visit on March 11. During the visit, H-E-B officials, along with members of the Aldine community, received an overview of the district by Dr. Bamberg. Additionally, the group visited four Aldine ISD campuses. The purpose of the visit was to determine the systemic capacity of the district to deliver high quality education in terms of its organization, processes and curriculum.
Created in 2002, the H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards are designed to honor outstanding public school systems and professionals and to thank them for their dedication and commitment. Through this program, H-E-B seeks to pay tribute to educators, administrators and districts who go the extra mile each and every day to serve their students and their communities and who inspire others to do the same.
