Milken Educator Award recipient Heidi Albin (center) has a moment to collect her thoughts as speakers talk about her sizable contributions to Complete High School Maize. When Albin discovered students lacked hope about their future, she implemented an individualized plan of study for each student that included classes to take, potential careers, guest speakers, job shadows and interview preparation skills. Not only did the students’ future perceptions and self-worth develop, so did concrete parts of their learning such as improved attendance, reduced dropouts and increased graduation rates. Ninety-five percent of her students graduate high school and 92 percent are either employed or enrolled in higher education five years after graduation.
