Jack London Awards to be Presented to Top K-12 Program

Exceptional teachers change the lives of their students every day and make an impact on them that lasts a lifetime.

Some of these inspirational elementary and secondary teachers from local communities will be awarded the Jack London Award for Excellence in Education during the 17th annual awards ceremony from 4 - 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 12 at the Sonoma State University Art Gallery.

The award is given annually to classroom teachers who run exemplary educational programs in Sonoma County schools. Winners who have earned the Jack London Award trophy in the past include Santa Rosa Middle School's "Rekindling Hopes and Dreams" and the Robert L. Stevens Elementary School's Dolphin Kings Chess Club.

In addition, programs coordinated by school administrators or community representatives are eligible for the Jack London Special Award for Community-School Cooperation.

SSU's School of Education sponsors the Jack London Awards and SSU faculty and staff, as well as community and educational leaders, serve as judges for this awards program.

For further information, contact Phyllis Fernlund, Dean of the School of Education, (707) 664-2132.
