Educators With An Impact...
We are surrounded with amazing educators who demonstrate their care and commitment to each generation of children.
Congratulations to the February 2017 Educator of the Month Winner…
Paul LaGrange of the Marysville Arts and Technology High school
Rick presented Paul with a plaque, a great big check to display, and $500 to help defray miscellaneous costs for the classroom.
A Special Thank You To Howard S. For This Nomination…
I am an alumni of the Arts and Technology high school. I'm writing this 5 years after graduating.
There is no way I would have graduated if it wasn't for Mr. LaGrange. In fact most students from our school would probably agree with that. He puts in a lot of effort to see as many graduates as possible. He runs a class that helps people reclaim past classes and make up for missed credits. He truly cares. He deserves to be recognized.
I heard about this on 1520 KXA and he instantly came to mind.
Update from our Winner...
I would like to thank you very much for the recent honor of receiving the Educator of the Month reward. Additionally, I would like to inform you about how this money will be spent.
The $500 will be used to support supplies for a student created Computer repair lab.
The lab brochure can be found here.
This year alone, students have:
-sent 12 Computers to a school in Tanzania
-sent 53 computers to 2 different schools in Haiti
-sent 10 to veterans throughout the US
-repaired more than 100 community member computers
-provided free training to more than 20 senior citizens.
I am extremely proud of the great work that my students are doing and this donation will go a long way in supporting them.
