Felicia Casto Wins CO Milken Award & $25,000

The students and staff at Rim Rock Elementary in Fruita are buzzing with excitement: Dr. Katy Anthes, Colorado's new commissioner of education, is stopping by for a visit, along with Steve Schultz, the superintendent of Mesa County Valley School District 51. The routine all-school assembly quickly takes an unexpected detour when special guest Lowell Milken, chairman and co-founder of the Milken Family Foundation, surprises math teacher Felicia Casto with a 2016-17 Milken Educator Award and $25,000, making the day Casto one will remember for the rest of her life. Relive Casto's career-changing moment in this short video.
