Katherine Shaw (CA '16)   |   Washington Elementary School  |  Bellflower, CA  |  Mar 03, 2017

There's a crowd gathered at Washington Elementary School in Bellflower, and everyone is buzzing with excitement. California Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson is here to commend the school on its Gold Ribbon Recognition—but there's another reason for the all-school gathering, and it's a shocker! When Lowell Milken, chairman and co-founder of the Milken Family Foundation, surprises kindergarten teacher Katherine Shaw with a California Milken Educator Award and $25,000, the star teacher's career is forever changed. Follow the day's momentous events in our photo gallery.
