Teachers Nominated for LEF Awards:

It started out as an average school day Tuesday, but some Lafayette teachers got a pleasant surprise. The Lafayette Education Foundation sent volunteers to tell teachers they have been nominated for the 2010 Teacher Awards.

Volunteers from business sponsors worked as the "pin patrol", pinning ribbons on the teachers -- a way to honor them in the first step towards the big awards early next year.

"It's great to be with the teachers, to see their emotions to realize they're very much appreciated," said volunteer Ed Boustany.

LEF received more than 600 nominations this year, from teachers who have made a difference; and it was not just coworkers and teachers that sent in nominations-- students did too.

A senior at Acadiana High, Sara Hawayek, nominated her accounting teacher, Mary Ellen Vincent.

"She really helped me catch up and she not only teaches as a class, but helps us focus," said Hawayek.

Vincent responded, "It makes me feel even better because it really feels like I'm reaching them like I feel I need to be."

Sixteen finalists will be chosen from the nominees, and 4 final winners will be announced at the awards ceremony in January. The winners will receive trophies, $1500, gift certificates and other prizes.
