Shannon Morago - 2011 Outstanding Teacher of America
In 2011 Shannon Morago of the Education Department received the Outstanding Teacher of America award, given by the Carlston Family Foundation. The Foundation solicits nominations from students, now in college, about high school teachers who changed their lives. The vetting process is extensive (interviews with former students, colleagues, administrators, and candidates themselves). It keeps getting better. The former student who nominated her is now at HSU as a chemistry major, and he presented Shannon the award at a ceremony in Southern California.
