Teacher's Information

The Arrow Dealerships were the driving force in the creation of now renowned Teacher Tribute Program. With the help of its founding partners, the awards program first started in the 1997-1998 school year, and how continued to grow ever since. The purpose of the Teacher Tribute Program is to give students of Abilene and the Big Country the opportunity to recognize and say "THANK YOU" to the teachers who have inspired and motivated them to do their best. The program is successful because of the relationship that exists between the teachers and students of the Big Country. One of the most unique things about Teacher Tribute is how our West Texas values shine through: the teachers give out loving and caring education while the students give back loving and caring appreciation.
