Lindsay Murray Joins Virginia's Milken Educators

Staples, Virginia's superintendent of public instruction, commend the school on its academic achievement and successful formula for closing the achievement gap. But the assembly takes an unexpected turn when Staples introduces Dr. Jane Foley, senior vice president of the Milken Educator Awards, who surprises fourth-grade teacher Lindsay Murray with Virginia's 2016-17 Milken Educator Award and a $25,000 check. Watch the morning assembly deliver a career-changing moment Murray will remember forever.
