The Cathloic Foundation, based in Preston Hollow, is calling for nominations for this year’s Work of Heart program that honors deserving Catholic school teachers in the area. As the school year starts back up, parents, teachers and students are encouraged to recommend their choices for the award, which amounts to $500 in grants.

Any staff members serving at one of the 37 schools within the Diocese of Dallas are eligible to apply.

The Work of Heart program was established in 2005, funded by an anonymous Dallas family through the Catholic Foundation. So far, they’ve presented 639 grants totaling $444,500. Check here for details about nominating someone.
