Milken Educator Awards Founder Lowell Milken explains what happened at today's assembly to Rejily Soriano's husband as Rejily and their daughter, a West Wendover Elementary third grader, listen in. "We know teachers make a financial sacrifice to go into the profession. ... This is an unrestricted prize and we expect her to use it in your family's best interest."
“Only when society demonstrates respect for educators will the brightest and most capable students choose it as their profession.” - Lowell Milken
