Milken Family Foundation Chairman and Co-Founder Lowell Milken chats with students in Bill Smithyman's classroom after the award ceremony ends. As an ELA teacher, Smithyman believes students should write on a daily basis. He has an ongoing classroom blogging project where he posts a daily prompt; students must respond without repeating any previous answers. Former students often return to visit, saying Smithyman is the reason they feel well prepared for college and comfortable taking high-stakes tests.
