"The Educator of the Year award is awarded to educators that go above and beyond in their educator role at Junior Achievement (JA)," said Alexia Willis, Senior Education Manager for Junior Achievement of the Chisholm Trail, Inc. "These educators are enthusiastic and excited about JA programs. They hold their students to high standards and are examples of hard work and integrity. They often work extra hours to support their students, communicate exceptionally well with JA, support the mission by providing a welcoming classroom environment to volunteers, providing honest feedback, and are all-around cheerleaders for JA. This award is awarded to just one educator out of the over 900 educators we work with each year. That being said, the educator of the year truly has a heart for JA!"
