Gallery+Story: Sun Bowl Association, CFP Foundation to Honor Local Teachers

The Sun Bowl Association, along with the College Football Playoff (CFP) Foundation, are partnering to present the ‘Extra Yard for Teachers Week’ and are honoring two area Teachers of the Year.

“We believe we have some amazing and most caring teachers here in El Paso,” said Executive Director Bernie Olivas. “We wanted to make sure we took this opportunity to say, ‘thank you’ to all our teachers and honor a couple of individuals who deserve recognition.”

Anna Peden, of the Clint Independence School District, and Eduardo Hinojos, of Socorro Independence School District, will be recognized on December 31, 2018 during the 85th Annual Hyundai Sun Bowl Game.

Ms. Peden has been an educator for 29 years and currently teaches fifth grade at Desert Hills Elementary school in the Clint ISD. Mr. Hinojos has been a teacher for ten years, teaching Government and Political Science at Americas High School in the Socorro ISD.

While Peden and Hinojos were presented with a certificate, t-shirt, gift card, and two tickets to the Hyundai Sun Bowl football game to honor and thank them for all that they do as educators, the Hyundai Sun Bowl will also recognize all teachers in attendance at the game.

‘Extra Yard for Teachers Week’ is set for September 15-22.  This is the Sun Bowl Association’s first year partnering with the CFP Foundation.

The CFP Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to using the platform of college football to spread positive messages and promote a culture of giving. ‘Extra Yard for Teachers Week’ is a CFP event that helps recognize, support, and celebrate all the amazing educators in our nation.
