Film has the Oscar™, music has the Grammy™, science has the Nobel and sports has its gold medals, but what about the true unsung heroes on the frontlines of shaping our future?  Where is the recognition for our nation’s educators?  Enter Lowell Milken and the Milken Educator Awards.

For 30 years, the Milken Educator Awards, an initiative of the Milken Family Foundation, have rewarded and inspired excellence in the world of education by honoring top educators around the country with $25,000 unrestricted awards. Not an accolade for “lifetime achievement” or the proverbial gold watch at the exit door, the Milken Educator Awards targets early-to-mid career education professionals for their already impressive achievements and, more significantly, for the promise of what they will accomplish in the future.

Congratulations to Katie Baker, third grade teacher, for receiving this prestigious award! We are so proud of her and are thankful to have her as part of our Battle Family.
