Award Notification: Dan Adler (MA '17)
UP Academy Leonard
Dan Adler, You're MA's Milken Educator!
There's a packed assembly at UP Academy Leonard in Lawrence, with Massachusetts Acting Education Commissioner Jeff Wulfson making a special back-to-school visit. Seems like an ordinary day until Wulfson introduces Dr. Jane Foley, senior vice president of the Milken Educator Awards, who names sixth-grade science teacher Dan Adler Massachusetts' 2017-18 Milken Educator Award winner and presents him with a huge $25,000 check. Adler is the first recipient of the Award from Lawrence Public Schools. Click on the video to relive Adler's big surprise.
