Distinguished Secondary School Teacher Award Recipients

In the fall, President Morton Schapiro asks the graduating seniors to nominate teachers who have had a transforming impact on students. A selection committee chaired by Eugene Lowe, Assistant to the President and Senior Lecturer in Religious Studies, with support from the Associated Student Government, reviews the nominations and requests teaching portfolios from nominated teachers for finalist consideration.

A small group of finalists are interviewed and the committee recommends five outstanding teachers to President Schapiro for this recognition.
