Ryan Towner Joins IN Milken EducatorsWalt Disney Elementary School | Mishawaka, IN | Mar 16, 2022
When Principal Towner takes the microphone to address the assembly gathered to watch his Milken Educator Award surprise, emotions run high throughout the room. "A school is a very powerful community," he says, thanking staff for their hard work. "I learn from you, I'm inspired by you, and I hope that in some way I'm returning that inspiration to you." Then, to students: "Turn around, look at your teachers, and heap praise on them. Thank them."
