Linda Dishman Wins First Milken Award of 2018-19 in KansasBerryton Elementary School | Berryton, KS | Oct 12, 2018
Proud students swarm fifth-grade teacher Linda Dishman for a congratulatory hug after her surprise Milken Educator Award notification. Quiet, calm and poised, Dishman builds up her students with positive words and encouragement. She tutors students after school and over the summer and coaches intramural volleyball, basketball and track. During Dishman’s first year of teaching, a shy student asked her to be her 5K “running buddy” for Girls on the Run, a program she embraced and has coached ever since.
