Westside High School teacher receives Inspiration Award
Retired Westside High School teacher Anne Heil was named one of two winners of Texas A&M University's Inspiration Award for Exceptional Secondary Education at Westside High School.
Heil was nominated by her former student Anna Lachner, who was enrolled in her advanced placement psychology and government classes while at Westside.
As an Inspiration Award winner, Heil received a $2,000 cash prize. Westside High School will also receive a $1,000 prize, which will be used to support student projects.
"It's my former student Anna Lachner who needs to be congratulated," said Heil of the honor. "She is a delightful young lady who was dedicated to her studies but also involved in many student activities while at Westside. She graduated with honors, and over the years, I have had the opportunity to watch her grow personally and academically. We need to celebrate this young woman's accomplishments.".
Westside High School is at 14201 Briar Forest, in Houston.
