STEM Star Erika Klose Wins WV Milken Award

Erika Klose (WV '17)   |   Winfield Middle School  |  Winfield, WV  |  Oct 30, 2017

Winfield Middle School is "thinking pink" today: West Virginia Superintendent of Schools Dr. Steven Paine, U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito and First Lady Cathy Leigh Comer Justice have come to commend the school for its support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. But wait—is there another reason for the all-school assembly? When Dr. Jane Foley, senior vice president of the Milken Educator Awards, names science teacher Erika Klose West Virginia's 2017-18 Milken Educator and presents her with a huge $25,000 check, the day quickly becomes one Klose will remember forever. Relive Klose's big surprise in the photos below.
