MD First Grade Teacher Maggie Hawk Surprised with $25,000 Milken Award
When teacher Maggie Hawk walked into the school assembly with her first grade class, she had no idea she was walking into her own party as the guest of honor. Minutes later, the Yellow Springs Elementary School teacher was shocked when she heard her name announced as the Maryland recipient of the prestigious Milken Educator Award, which comes with an unrestricted $25,000 cash prize. Watch her emotional reaction when Milken Family Foundation Co-Founder Mike Milken and his wife, Milken Family Foundation Trustee Lori Milken, along with Dr. Jack R. Smith, Maryland Deputy State Superintendent for Teaching & Learning and Chief Academic Officer, announce in front of the entire school that she is the 2014–15 Milken Educator for Maryland—and recipient of the $25,000 prize!
