PRESCOTT--The Prescott School District has been informed two Prescott teachers have been nominated for a Kohl Foundation Fellowship Award.
A regional selection committee evaluated 31 initial applications. Jason Brazzale, high school biology teacher, and Greg Lenn, second grade teacher, are among the names of 10 area nominees who will be considered for further consideration by a State Selection Committee. The nominees are also eligible for consideration of the Wisconsin Teacher of the Year Award.
The Kohl Teacher Fellowship program recognizes teaching excellence in Wisconsin. By supporting fellowship recipients with a $1,000 grant, the program is able to help teachers fulfill goals for their classroom or professional development. In addition, the recipient’s school also receives a $1,000 matching grant for innovation in education efforts.
The Herb Kohl Foundation awards 100 Fellowship awards annually. Teachers in Pre-K through grade 12 are eligible for nomination by a parent, teacher, student, community member or administrator. Nominees who complete the application process are evaluated by a regional selection committee based on their ability to inspire a love of learning, as well as their leadership and service in the classroom and community.
Recipients of the 2013 Kohl Foundation Fellowship award will be announced in early March.
When informed of these nominations, Roger Hulne, Prescott School Superintendent, said, “I am very proud of the effort that Mr. Brazzale and Mr. Lenn provide to our students. This recognition is well deserved.”
