Milken Educator Award Winner Speaks

It started out as an unusual school assembly at Eagle River High School on the morning of Feb. 1 as Alaska Commissioner of Education Michael Johnson, Anchorage School District’s Superintendent Deena Bishop, and CEO of the National Institute for Excellence Dr. Gary Stark arrived to speak. They knew a tightly held secret. Dr. Stark began his speech, but then shifted his focus by revealing that the purpose of the assembly was actually to announce the winner of the Milken Educator Award. The Milken Educator Award is a rare honor for select teachers across the U.S. Only one educator from Alaska received it this year. The award comes with a $25,000 prize and numerous professional development opportunities.
