The Wylie Bulldogs Education Foundation welcomed 54 new teachers to Wylie during its annual New Teacher Luncheon sponsored by Hendrick Health Systems.
The foundation presented the teachers with $100 gift cards to Mardel.
The award is given in honor of foundation president Becky Rentz, who is a retired teacher and the driving force behind the education foundation. It is presented to a teacher who has utilized WBEF Teacher Grant money to challenge and motivate students in a creative way.
Hughes has received grants in eight of the 11 years that they have been given and has used them for both art and biology.
