It's a big day at Drew Central Elementary: Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Department of Education Secretary Jacob Oliva are visiting to celebrate the "One School, One Book" program at an exciting assembly. But there's another reason for their visit, and it involves a huge surprise for one outstanding teacher! When National Institute for Excellence in Teaching Chief Executive Officer Dr. Joshua Barnett, representing the Milken Family Foundation, joins to present third grade teacher Emily Howard with the first ever $25,000 Milken Educator Award in Drew Central Schools, no one is more surprised than the recipient herself.
