Brad LeDuc of Topeka, KS “Inspirational” New Milken Educator
With the help of Kansas Governor Sam Brownback and Commissioner of Education Dr. Diane DeBacker, Lowell Milken surprises fine arts teacher Brad LeDuc with a $25,000 Milken Educator Award. Brad’s students at Washburn Rural High School in Topeka were happy for the teacher they call “inspirational.” The sole 2013 recipient for Kansas, Brad wanted to be sure this isn’t a dream -- “I feel like somebody needs to pinch me; Governor, can you pinch me?” The governor believes that the award is a message of value and hopes that it inspires students to do their best, too.
