Good morning, Vestavia Hills Elementary! Alabama State Superintendent of Education Dr. Eric G. Mackey is on hand to congratulate students and staff for their exemplary test scores and focus on whole-child education as a "Leader in Me" school. But when Mackey introduces Lowell Milken, chairman and co-founder of the Milken Family Foundation, everyone quickly realizes there's another reason for the assembly ... and a big surprise in store for one Vestavia Hills educator! Milken presents fifth-grade teacher Heather Hurt Alabama's 2018-19 Milken Educator Award and $25,000, making the day one Hurt will never forget.
