As students, faculty and special guests applaud, Brandon accepts the Milken Educator Award from Milken Family Foundation Chairman and Co-Founder Lowell Milken. Lowell has been publicly recognizing spectacular teachers for nearly three decades and he knows Brandon, like many Milken Educators before him, will continue to make positive contributions to education for many years to come.
Brandon later thanked Lowell for creating this significant award to recognize teachers. "We are bringing up the youth and the future," said the newly-minted Milken Educator.
