UTEP To Honor Teachers at Football Game

WEBTeacher-appreciation_today_03What: UTEP’s Teacher Appreciation Football Game

When: 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 26

Where: Sun Bowl Stadium

The University of Texas at El Paso will honor the contributions of teachers, administrators and support staff at public and private schools throughout Region 19 during the UTEP football game against the University of North Texas.

UTEP, with the help of the El Paso Area Teachers Federal Credit Union (TFCU), organized the annual event to recognize the efforts by pre-K-12 personnel to teach, engage, nurture and mentor students in their care. Their encouragement helps thousands of area students to believe in themselves and their dreams. The ripple effect positively impacts the families, friends and neighbors of those students.

“UTEP takes delight in honoring educators like you as our special guests at the Miners football game,” UTEP President Diana Natalicio said in her invitation letter to pre-K-12 school personnel through their school districts and campus administrations.

“This is one way in which we thank you for your partnership with UTEP and for the time, talent, wisdom and expertise that you invest daily in the young people who represent the future of our community.”

Each teacher, administrator and support staff member will receive up to four general admission tickets to the game. Register to receive complimentary tickets at www.teacherappreciationfootballgame.utep.edu by 11:59 p.m. Nov. 22.
