Irving Independent School District teacher Helen Bradley was honored July 18 with an Association of Texas Professional Educators (ATPE) Campus Representative of the Year Award. Bradley, a teacher at Nimitz High School, was presented with the award during the 2013 ATPE Summit Membership Awards Luncheon held at the Austin Convention Center. Bradley won the Campus Representative of the Year Award for local units with 1,001 plus members. She won $500 for herself for helping to recruit new members to the association. She also won $250 for her local unit, Irving ATPE, which has 1,428 public school employees as members. The local unit can use the funds for future membership activities. The Campus Representative of the Year Award acknowledges ATPE volunteers who are fundamental to the association’s growth and development. Nearly 1,000 people celebrated the achievements of public school educators at the luncheon, at which numerous awards were presented to educators who demonstrate exceptional leadership skills.
