Chamber of Commerce recognizes area educators
The New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce recently recognized area educators and honored April Briggs, Audra Hall and Robert Petrisky from the Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City Independent School District.
Briggs, a teacher from Schertz Elementary, was honored as last year's distinguished educator, which made her eligible for the Trinity Prize for Excellence in Teaching.
“Her main qualification is that she is just a great first grade teacher who puts her heart and soul into her classroom,” said Schertz Elementary Principal David Pevoto. “She is the backbone of technology at our campus and she serves as Schertz Elementary^ TechMate, which is almost a full time job by itself. I cannot think of anyone who is more deserving.”
Also honored in the ceremony was Hall. Hall started teaching at Samuel Clemens in 1999, after spending four years as an agricultural science instructor and FFA advisor at Floresville High School.
“I am glad to be back in the district,” said Hall, who graduated from Clemens, taught there for Five years, and now teaches at Steele High School.
Former Dobie and new Clemens Band Director Petrisky was honored by the chamber for receiving the district’s highest educational honor the Norma Paschal Commitment to Children Award.
While at Dobie Junior High his band program accumulated 11 UIL Sweepstakes trophies during the school’s seven year history, including all seven with the Honor Band.
