FRANKFORT, KY (4/9/12) – A Kentucky educator will get the surprise of a lifetime this week, when he or she will be notified of his or her selection as a Milken Family Foundation Educator.
On Tuesday, April 10, at 2 p.m. ET, the educator will be visited by Kentucky Education Commissioner Terry Holliday, former Governor and current President of the University of Pikeville Paul Patton and other special guests. The educator is employed by Pikeville High School.
Commissioner Holliday and other visitors will arrive at the school at approximately 1:45 p.m. ET.
Confidentiality is extremely important in this visit, as the winner does not know of his or her selection.
The largest teacher recognition program in the U.S., the Milken Family Foundation National Educator Awards were created to reward, retain and attract the highest quality K-12 educators to the profession. Each Milken Educator receives an unrestricted financial award of $25,000.
Since 1993, when the state joined the program, 51 Kentucky educators have received the award.
