LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Thursday 50 deserving teachers in Lufkin got a huge surprise. The LISD Education Foundation had its second annual prize patrol.
The prize patrol is when board members, Lufkin high school cheerleaders and band members surprise teachers with grant money.
This year, $36,423 was split into 11 grants.
"I was shocked, I was shaking," Kayla Springfield, a Brandon Elementary special education teacher said. "I walked into the school and I heard drums playing. I had no idea what was going on."
Springfield's grant is going toward buying tablets for her students.
