Wayne County High School is in the spotlight today, with Deputy Superintendent of Rural Education and Innovation at the Georgia Department of Education Dr. Bronwyn Ragan-Martin and Georgia State Board of Education Member Nicholas Ellis visiting to celebrate student growth as a new semester begins! But there's another reason for all the visiting dignitaries, which comes to light when Stephanie Bishop, vice president of the Milken Educator Awards, steps to the microphone and names science teacher Colt Brockington Georgia's sole 2023-24 Milken Educator. And there's more: Brockington's surprise of a lifetime comes with a $25,000 check! Follow along in the photos below to see how the outstanding educator became our 2,968th recipient recognized on the journey to 3,000 Milken Educators.
