Smith Congratulates Local Teacher on Award for Excellence
Sep 17, 2012 -
Congressman Lamar Smith (TX-21) today joined Humanities Texas in presenting a local teacher with the Outstanding Teaching of the Humanities Award. Deborah Magnon-Nolting, a social studies teacher at Randolph High School, is one of 13 recipients of the 2012 award. Ms. Magnon-Nolting has taught social studies in public schools for 35 years, the last 19 of which have been at Randolph High School. More than 300 teachers were nominated for the statewide award.
Congressman Smith: “This award recognizes not only Ms. Magnon-Nolting’s skill and talent as a teacher, but also her dedication to the educational excellence of her students. As any parent knows, it is not always easy to teach our children the lessons they need to know for their future. As a society, we entrust much of that work to our teachers. Ms. Magnon-Nolting deserves our appreciation and gratitude for her extraordinary efforts on behalf of our children.”
Ms. Magnon-Nolting will receive a $5,000 cash award from Humanities Texas and an additional $500 for Randolph High School to purchase humanities-based instructional materials.
