Melissa Kovac Joins New Mexico Milken EducatorsAmy Biehl Community School | Santa Fe, NM | Nov 02, 2016
Second-grade teacher and Milken Award recipient Melissa Kovac has a Kleenex moment as she and Dr. Jane Foley, senior vice president of the Milken Educator Awards, listen to applause and cheers from the Amy Biehl community. Kovac's positive attitude and infectious optimism make her beloved among students, parents and peers: She serves on the school's leadership and advisory teams, coaches the cheerleading squad, participates in events with the local Audubon Society, and helps organize Walk & Roll To School Day to encourage families to walk, bike and rollerskate to school.
Kleenex brand has a long history of supporting educators and is excited to expand its efforts by supporting the Milken Educator Awards. A brand partnership at 2016-2017 events will ensure honorees are cared for during every #KleenexMoment.
