Alice High School Math teacher Carlos De La Garza (center) was honored Wednesday afternoon with an Ice Cream Party for his selection as a finalist for Texas Secondary Teacher of the Year. Blue Bell Creameries Territory Manager Jon Finley (right) was on hand for the event, and gave De La Garza an ample supply of ice cream to take home and enjoy. “An accomplishment such as this is good, both for Alice High School and its students,” Finley said of De La Garza’s honor.
