Rose Longoria, Pace ECHS principal, was surprised with the announcement that she is a 2017 Principal Finalist in the H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards program. The news came at a school assembly for Women’s History Month and Cheer Squad Recognition. She received a check for $1,000 and her school received $2,500. Longoria will compete against other educators to win greater cash prizes. The overall state winners will be announced in May. View more photos on flickr.
