BROWNSVILLE, Texas – A high school principal is a finalist for the H-E-B Principal of the Year award for the third time in a row.
Rose Longoria is saying goodbye to her role as a principal, but not before being presented with a $1,000 check. She is one of five principals statewide who are considered for the H-E-B Excellence In Education Award. Longoria has been the principal at Pace High school for nine years and will soon be embarking on a new position.
“For the third year in a row I have become the H-E-B finalist principal of the year for secondary. I know that the reason it’s given to me is because of the work that everyone does here at Pace. Not only me, the only thing I’m going to do is go and pick up the award but really bring it back to Pace because it belongs to them.” said Longoria.
Longoria will be serving as Brownsville ISD’s Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction. The H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards winner will be announced in May with the grande prize totaling $25,000.
