What brings Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer to Berryton Elementary School? He's here for a special assembly with Commissioner of Education Dr. Randy Watson, other dignitaries, and an unexpected guest who's about to change one teacher's career. Fifth-grade teacher Linda Dishman gets the surprise of a lifetime when Lowell Milken, chairman and co-founder of the Milken Family Foundation, names her the winner of the first Milken Educator Award of the 2018-19 season and $25,000.

  • Congratulations to Linda Dishman, and special thanks to the Milken Family Foundation for bestowing the first education award of 2018-2919. This brings back many memories of my 1992 award. Kudos to the awardee and to the foundation. Blessings.
