One “Happy” Day for NC Milken Educator Angie Sigmon

Angie Sigmon, a Shuford Elementary School teacher in Conover, North Carolina, is caught completely off-guard when the Milken Family Foundation names her as the state’s sole Milken Educator Award recipient for the 2014–15 school year.  The honor comes with a $25,000 cash prize that Angie can use however she chooses. North Carolina Superintendent of Public Instruction Dr. June Atkinson joins Milken Educator Awards’ Dr. Jane Foley in the all-school assembly to bring Angie the good news, and the event is topped with a special high school performance of Pharrell Williams’ “Happy.” Get on your feet for Angie Sigmon!
