WEST PALM BEACH- The School District of Palm Beach County and Braman Motorcars are teaming up during National Teacher Appreciation Week to celebrate the District’s Teacher of the Year and School-Related Employee of the Year, as well as nominees for the awards, with a first-ever reception for winners and nominees on Thursday, May 11 at Braman’s state-of-the-art BMW showroom in West Palm Beach.
Honorees at the event will include Jane Winters, the Afterschool Site Director at Beacon Cove Intermediate School who is the School-Related Employee of the Year for 2017 and a finalist for Florida’s School-Related Employee of the Year, and Dr. Evangeline Aguirre, ESOL Intensive Reading and English teacher at Palm Beach Central High School, who is the Teacher of the Year for the 2017-2018 school year and the District’s nominee for the 2018 Florida Department of Education-Macy’s Teacher of the Year program.
Each school’s Teacher of the Year and School-Related Employee of the Year nominees will also be recognized during the reception, from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Braman Motorcars BMW dealership, 2901 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach.
“Partnerships between the School District and our local businesses are essential to the success of our students and schools,” said Superintendent Robert Avossa. “Our community and business partners are important to the District, and we are grateful to Braman for stepping up to help us recognize these employees.”
Hosting the reception is just part of a growing partnership between Braman Motorcars and the School District. The company has joined with the automotive academy at Park Vista High School to provide training and on-the-job experience for its students, is holding a job fair at the dealership later this month for students to explore careers in automotive, has worked with educators on the real-world demands of the job market to take back to their students and recently has begun offering financial incentives to District employees for the purchase of BMW’s and MINI’s through a new Corporate Fleet Program developed with the District.
“The development of our youth is paramount to the long term success and development of our community,” said Stephen Grossman, General Manager & COO of Braman Motorcars. “We plan to support the School District’s five-year strategic plan and lead by example so that other county businesses see the potential to invest in our collective futures through our public school system.”
Braman Motorcars is no stranger to the District, as a supporter of the music department at the Alexander W. Dreyfoos Jr. School of the Arts and a substantial five-year financial commitment to Jupiter High School. Braman also recently provided a holiday lunch and shopping spree for students from Boynton Beach High School.
In addition to Braman Motorcars, the District would like to thank the following sponsors for the Teacher of the Year and School-Related Employee of the Year program, including: J.G. Wentworth, H&R Block,
Optucorp, Calvo Realty Group and Horace Mann. Braman would like to thank the following businesses for their contributions to the event: Fantastic Finishes, Autotrader and Affinitiv.
