Nichols Named Stafford Ms District Teacher of The Year

Zenikka Nichols.

Stafford Intermediate School Zenikka Nichols was elated to learn that she was the 2018-19 Stafford Municipal School District (MSD) Teacher of the Year. Nichols’ excitement didn’t end there.

Thanks to Stafford MSD’s community partner, Classic Chevrolet of Sugar Land, the sixth grade Science/Social Studies teacher was presented with a free three month lease. Ray Aguilar, Classic Chevrolet of Sugar Land’s Community Relations Director, presented the lease to Nichols. She will drive a Chevrolet Equinox through the month of June. For July and August, she will have the opportunity to choose different vehicles.

Nichols, a native of Clinton, Mississippi, graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi and worked in the banking industry. Taking a leap of faith, she decided to relocate to the Houston area. She joined the Stafford Intermediate faculty in the summer of 2015 and has since become a Team Leader.

This is the second year that Classic Chevrolet of Sugar Land has partnered with Stafford MSD. Aguilar and Classic provided additional honors this year. Djuna Cole, the 2018-19 Stafford MSD Secondary Teacher of the Year, also received a free lease on a Chevrolet Traverse through the month of June. Nichols, Cole, Stafford Elementary School Teacher of the Year Maricela Diaz and Stafford High School Teacher of the Year Niki Herbert received a free oil change and car cleaning.
