The H-E-B program, which is now in its 18th year, has awarded more than $8.5 million in funding to benefit outstanding Texas public schools. Roma ISD was selected as a finalist alongside Canutillo ISD and Stephenville ISD. To determine the overall statewide winner, a panel of judges will visit each district, touring campuses and talking with administration, staff, parents and community members. Winners will be announced at the H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards ceremony in May 2019. The winning small district will receive $50,000.


“We sincerely thank H-E-B for providing this opportunity for Roma ISD to shine the spotlight on the amazing work taking place in The Gladiator Nation,” said Roma ISD Superintendent Carlos Guzman. “We are honored to be selected as a finalist for the award and look forward to showcasing excellence in education through the hard work of our students and staff.
