The HW Edfund Over & Above Award was awarded to HWRHS English Teacher, Tracy Stephens. This award is presented to a teacher, administrator, or student who best represents the mission of the Edfund. A grant writer who demonstrates leadership, innovation, and creativity.
2022 Over and Above Award
Every year the Edfund presents the Over and Above award to teachers, administrators, or a group of students who, through a grant request, best represents the mission of the Edfund. A grant writer who demonstrates: Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity.
Tracy truly embodies these three qualities. She has shown leadership in identifying a real need in the social-emotional well-being of students within her school, and innovation in finding a creative solution to address this need. This could not have come at a more needed time.
From the beginning, the Edfund was blown away at:
the thoroughness of her research on the benefits and impact of a therapy dog,
the dedication she showed in learning about the process and getting trained as a handler, and
the passion with which she spoke about wanting to support students who may be struggling with anxiety, depression, or the stress of being a teenager today.
Thank you for your dedication to making a difference in our student's lives.
