The Lowell Milken Center (LMC) for Unsung Heroes in Fort Scott, Kansas has awarded its 2022 Fellowship to 11 educators. As part of their week-long experience in Fort Scott, the five fellows for June 26 – July 1 were given the key to the city. Six other Fellows were in Fort Scott last week.
The Fellows honored this week were Trysta Asche from Nebraska, Bonnie Garrett from Alabama, Jayda Pugliese from Pennsylvania, Josha Sietsma from the Netherlands, and Suzy Turner from Iowa.
LMC Director Norm Conard praised these outstanding individuals, saying, “It is an honor to be able to network and collaborate with these exceptional educators and provide this opportunity for them to reflect, re-energize and strategize with each other as they seek new ways to inspire their students.”
Every summer, the Lowell Milken Center for Unsung Heroes awards their Fellowship to national and international award-winning educators from America and around the world.
As LMC Fellows, they deepen their understanding of Unsung Heroes and project-based learning, preparing them to develop Unsung Heroes projects with their students and learn the stories of role models who help change the world.
Along with the time spent deepening their professional skills at the LMC, the Fellows enjoy visiting the Fort Scott area.
