The Hooks and Reliant teamed up to reward outstanding local public-school teachers with a $1,500 grant for school supplies through the All-Star Educators Program in 2023. Thanks to Mardel, each educator received an additional $100 for a grand total of $1,600!
A panel of judges awarded 10 educators based on STEAM curriculum, student impact and teaching style, as well as any unique challenges the educator overcame. STEAM instructors develop strategies and techniques to educate students in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math.
Each winner received $1,600 toward the purchase of school supplies at Mardel and a special on-field recognition at a Hooks game this past summer. Check out their journey below being recognized at Whataburger Field, going on a shopping spree and even see how teachers classrooms were impacted.
