LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Three South Plains educators were chosen as the Teachers On The Rise winners Thursday.

Kindergarten teacher Aaron Rogers from Hardwick Elementary, Plains Middle School teacher Kelly Baum and At-Risk Counselor Jeremy Cortez of Estacado High School have been named as the winners for September.

Cortez says he was helping to set up the event and was not expecting to be awarded.

"It's not something that I was hoping or anything like that. You know, I truly am grateful to be at Estacado High School," Cortez said.

Teachers On The Rise is a new program that recognizes teachers who go above and beyond the call and have a positive impact on their students.

The teachers were nominated by their students. Three more winners will be chosen each month throughout the school year.
