District Teachers of the Year Receive $5,000 Checks in Surprise Events

There was one more surprise for our Fort Worth ISD Teachers of the Year!

Representatives from Central Market made unannounced visits to William Monnig Middle School and Eastern Hills Elementary School to deliver the Elementary and Secondary District Teacher of the Year awards to Vanida Chanthaphone and Anthony Smith-Wright.

Central Market is a longtime Fort Worth ISD partner and title sponsor of both the Campus Teacher of the Year and District Teacher of the Year award programs. Every year, they award $5,000 to each District Teacher of the Year winner and $1,500 to each of the eight finalists.

Part of the Central Market tradition is to make surprise visits to winners’ schools. This year, they delivered the $5,000 honorarium and a bouquet of flowers to each winner and brought cupcakes for the classes. Congratulations again to Vanida and Anthony and many thanks to our partner, Central Market, for their continued support.
