Lake Houston Area Chamber honors 2012 Teachers of the Year
- Written by Colin Harris
The Lake Houston Area Chamber of Commerce honored 44 Humble ISD teachers Tuesday, Oct. 16 at a luncheon to celebrate the Teachers of the Year. Mark Micheletti served as master of ceremonies and introduced Dr. Guy Sconzo, Superintendent of HISD schools. Nearly 260 were in attendance at the event sponsored by Starplex Cinemas and First Choice Emergency Room, among others. “Our teachers don’t hear the words 'thank you' enough for all of their time and dedication to our area’s youth,” Micheletti said. “The Teachers of the Year Luncheon provides us an opportunity to express our gratitude to the educators in the area.” Ted Mandel, community coordinator of Starplex Cinemas, praised the service of area teachers, "Many of our employees are products of our community and school system. At Starplex we try very hard to provide the movie goer with the kind of service they want and the education our staff receives is one of the reasons we believe we accomplish that. We think that all the businesses in our community appreciate the good employees our teachers give them. We certainly do! The education our kids are receiving in this community will go a long way in their quest for success in life. I know it worked for my kids." Paul Lyle, pastor of Summer Creek Baptist Church, was on hand to deliver the invocation. Among the 44 school winners, two district-wide winners were picked, Ana Mascolo from Elm Grove Elementary School and Robin Pullen from Kingwood Park High School.
