Krystal Contreras Gets Surprise of a Lifetime in TX

Krystal Contreras (TX '18)   |   Dr. C.M. Cash Elementary School  |  San Benito, TX  |  Feb 15, 2019

It's a big day at Dr. C.M. Cash Elementary: There's a festive all-school assembly, and Texas Commissioner of Education Mike Morath is visiting to commend students and staff on their outstanding achievements. But wait ... why is Commissioner Morath introducing a special guest from California? Students and staff raise the roof with their applause and cheers when Dr. Jane Foley, senior vice president of the Milken Educator Awards, surprises fourth-grade writing teacher Krystal Contreras with Texas' Milken Award and $25,000. The first-ever recipient from San Benito CISD, Contreras will remember this career-changing day forever.
