The Teacher of the Year Banquet will take place on May 4th
Prescott Valley’s Humboldt Education Foundation (HEF) is happy to announce their Teacher of the Year banquet will take place this year on May 4th, 5:30 PM at the Findlay Toyota Center with enough spacing and health protocols for everyone’s safety.
For the past 5 years HEF has hosted the annual Teacher of the Year banquet to honor Humboldt Unified School District (HUSD) teachers. Each school asks students to nominate a current or past teacher that has made a difference in their lives by submitting an essay. Each spring a banquet is held in their honor where the teacher, student, school staff and the community attend to honor these shining examples from HUSD. During the banquet each student is called up to read the essay to their teacher (sometimes they are hearing it for the first time) and the teacher shares their reaction and why it is that they chose to become a teacher. It is a wonderful event filled with celebration, recognition and applause honoring all of the nominees. After all of the essays are read, the HEF Board announces the K-6 category winner and the 7-12 category winner. It is truly an event to celebrate all teachers and show the impact they have on their students and our community.

The Humboldt Education Foundation is looking forward to providing another night of celebration for our educators. In order for this event to take place each year HEF seeks sponsorship for the Teacher of the Year banquet. For the past 4 years HEF has received amazing support from community sponsors and we are looking for their continued support again this year. Sponsorship is what makes the banquet possible and allows for teacher mini-grants to be funded throughout the school year and student scholarships to be awarded in May. If you are a business interested in sponsoring this event please visit the HEF website at https://humboldteducationfoundation.org/sponsorship-options/ for details.
