Zavala principal recognized as TEPSAN of the Year

Zavala Elementary principal, Tanya Garza, was recently recognized as Region 1 TEPSAN of the Year by the Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association (TEPSA).

Members from the 20 TEPSA Regions across the state annually honor a colleague for their outstanding service to the association. Award recipients must be committed to advancing the principalship and the association, as well as serving as a voice for Texas students.

β€œIt is such an honor to be recognized with the TEPSAN of the Year distinction,” says Garza. β€œI am proud to serve as the leader of Zavala Elementary, and I am grateful to HCISD for the opportunity to be at the forefront of transforming learning for global achievement.”

Garza, a seven year TEPSA member, will be recognized at the TEPSA Awards Reception Wednesday, June 15, at the Austin Renaissance Hotel.
