Family & Consumer Science teacher wins raffle drawing


Teacher Sue Ann Tebo entered a drawing and won $1,000 check to fund her classroom. Tebo has been an educator for 33 years and teaches Culinary Arts, Family Studies and Life Management at Hays High School.

“I originally found out about the drawing through a friend,” Tebo said. “She nominated me to join the drawing.”

The drawing was held by the office of Lynn Rodgers, who is the Kansas Treasurer. Teachers could sign up to be put in a drawing for a $1,000 check.

They had to postpone the presentation of the check six times, and finally, she received the check in the mail in December.

With the new funds, Tebo said she has many options, although a majority will go to her Family Studies class.

“I haven’t decided what to do with all of it yet, but the money will go to purchase necessary supplies for my kiddos,” Tebo said. “I want to buy big items for my Family Studies class for active play so the little ones in childcare development can utilize those.”
