HOUSTON (CBS Houston) The Houston Area Alliance of Black School Educators (HAABSE) will award the Houston Independent Schools District Superintendent Terry Grier its Presidential Award, according to officials with HISD.

As the organization celebrates the accomplishments and achievements of educators during the 26th Annual Outstanding Teacher Awards and Recognition Ceremony, Dr. Grier will be awarded the Presidential Award as an educator who is also seen as a pioneer.

“The HAABSE will also honor community activist Georgia Provost for her work in education, and will recognize exceptional teachers from greater Houston and surrounding areas. Scholarships will be awarded to graduating high school seniors studying education. The HAABSE’s primary mission is to enhance leadership in providing valuable professional services and strategies to institutions, agencies, and communities engaged in creating an environment in which students, particularly minority students, can achieve academic excellence,” according to officials with HISD.

The Houston Independent School district website states that Dr. Grier, “…became the Houston Independent School District’s superintendent of schools after a unanimous vote of approval by the district’s Board of Education in September 2009. Since that time, the Board of Education has extended his contract through June 2016.”

Before his tenure with HISD, Dr. Grier served as superintendent of the San Diego Unified School District for 18 months and superintendent of the Guilford County Schools in Greensboro, North Carolina for approximately eight years.
