LEF is pleased to announce Lewisville High School Harmon Social Studies teacher Wendy Seeliger as the 2016 winner of the Ted Barnes Award for Excellence in Education.
“We are thrilled for Ms. Seeliger and her recognition for the Ted Barnes LHS Award of Excellence in Education,” Harmon Principal Tony Fontana said. “She is deserving of such an honor as she continues to provide outstanding and enriching experiences for all students at LHS Harmon.”
This award was established by Ted Barnes, who taught at Lewisville High School for 25 years before losing his battle with cancer.
According to Mr. Barnes’ request before his passing, the honorarium is awarded to a current Lewisville High School teacher or administrator who has served at LHS, demonstrating outstanding educational service, for at least 10 years.
“It was an honor to be chosen and I am humbled, because I know and work with so many deserving colleagues,” Seeliger said. “I do need to give credit where credit is due though, and thank Mr. Fontana, Mr. Brennan and my ex-student Michael Ramos-Yeo, who will be attending my alma mater in the Fall, Go Longhorns!, for graciously taking the time to write recommendation letters for me.”
Congratulations, Ms. Seeliger!
