A total of 17 educators have been selected to be recognized as Educators of Excellence from the Harry T. Wilks Hamilton Celebrates Education program this year. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the annual recognition event had to be canceled.
Each school chose an Educator of Excellence to be recognized in 2020. All 17 educators receive a $1,000 grant from the Hamilton Community Foundation for their use in the classroom or school. Each educator will also receive a piece of custom glass art made by InsideOut Studio.
We would like to thank each of these educators for all of their hard work and dedication to our students. Congratulations on being an Educator of Excellence!
