Milken Family Foundation Chairman and Co-Founder Lowell Milken visits the classroom of biotech teacher Nicki Derryberry after her surprise Milken Educator Award ceremony. The whole campus was captivated when Derryberry created a science mystery project about the disappearance of the missing mountain lion (Red Mountain High’s mascot). Derryberry designed a crime scene and wrote a script; the scene was filmed and aired along with interviews of administrators, students and teachers. Students collected DNA samples, analyzed shoe prints and worked with the evidence to solve the mystery.
