New Milken Educator Gina Benz gets choked up as she stands in front of the cheering crowd in the packed gymnasium at Roosevelt High School. Benz is credited with the recent expansion of Roosevelt's AP program, and 76% of her students receive passing grades on the AP English exam. Some of her students have earned enough credit through AP courses to start college as juniors.
