Chris Bessonette, You're a WY Milken Educator

Chris Bessonette (WY '18)   |   Munger Mountain Elementary School  |  Jackson, WY  |  Jan 04, 2019

At Munger Mountain Elementary School, 2019 is starting off with a bang: a festive all-school assembly with Wyoming Superintendent of Public Instruction Jillian Balow, who is visiting to celebrate the new school's first year. But there's another reason for the superintendent's visit—and it includes a big surprise and a huge check for one outstanding educator. Follow along in the photos below as Balow and Greg Gallagher, senior program director for the Milken Family Foundation, present second-grade dual immersion teacher Chris Bessonette with Wyoming's 2018-19 Milken Educator Award and $25,000. It's a day Bessonette will remember forever.
