2020 SHH Sponsor Winners
I am truly honored to have received the Park-Sihocky Award as I am a new sponsor. I would like to thank the administration for their support as well as that of my colleagues. I would also like to thank my students, who challenge me every day and thus inspire me to innovate my learning strategies.
This award only serves to fortify my efforts to help students become more civically engaged, by making them contributing members of society.
It is important for them to realize the difference they can have in their communities, in doing so, it will also encourage them to pass on what they have learned to others so that it becomes generational. In conjunction to being a teacher at the Brownsville Independent School District, I am a dual enrollment professor at Texas Southmost College.
I look forward to traveling next year to Atlanta to personally meet the AATSP members and continue to inspire the service leaders of tomorrow.
PARK-SIHOCKY AWARD FOR A NEW CHAPTER SPONSOR RECIPIENT
Capítulo Dr. Juliet V. Garcia
Brownsville Early College High School
I am extremely honored to receive the Mario Fierros Award for Excellence. I have been fortunate throughout my time as a SHH chapter sponsor to have the support of my administration and school community. I have had the pleasure of working with awesome students in our SHH chapter.
Winning this award would not have been possible without the dedication and respect of my students, as well as the support of administrators, and numerous activities sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese and the Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica.
I sincerely thank everyone that has supported me as I strive to promote the Spanish language and Hispanic culture, as well as recognize the achievements in Spanish of my high school students.
This award is greatly appreciated and I am honored to be selected as this year’s recipient.
