2-28-2022 Elementary Principal Wendy Conover Wins H-E-B Excellence in Education Finalist Award!

On Tuesday, February 22, 2022, the H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards Team, with some help from H‑E‑B Buddy, surprised everyone at Lytle Elementary to announce that Principal Wendy Conover was selected as one of 5 finalists for their awards program. We are so proud and thankful that H‑E‑B has recognized Mrs. Conover for all she has done for her campus and the students in our district! Take a look at the Google Photo album and watch the videos to hear about the prizes she has won for her school! H-E-B Excellence in Education Finalist Principal Wendy Conover

Mrs. Conover's Statewide Finalist standing in the 2022 H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards means she stood out in a crowded field. H-E-B received more than 1500 applications from educators all over the state and their judges had their work cut out for them in narrowing the field. In January, H-E-B's initial readers selected the 150 Teachers and 50 Principal Semi-Finalists who competed in the Regional judging. H-E-B Regional judge panels comprised of Educators, Administrators and Community Leaders chose the 40 Finalists who are being honored over the next few weeks. The judges were very impressed by Mrs. Conover's written comments and her extensive professional accomplishments.

As a Finalist, Mrs. Conover will participate in one more final judging and awards celebration from April 29 through May 1, in Austin. She'll compete with four other principal candidates, based on years of service in the classroom and grade level(s) taught. All five candidates will participate in a personal interview with a panel of distinguished judges on Friday, April 29. 

We are so proud of you, Mrs. Conover and wish you all the best in the final stage of this competition! You have already won, in our book. Pirate Pride!
