The 2016-17 Horizon Award was presented recently to Mrs. Jennifer Daley, Journalism and Yearbook teacher at Shawnee Heights High School.
The Horizon Award is presented annually to teachers who have completed their first year of teaching and have distinguished themselves as an outstanding educator. Mrs. Daley grew up in a small town in South Central Kansas and attended the University of Kansas. It was while tutoring at an after school program sponsored by the Boys and Girls Club that Jeni realized she was called to be a teacher.
The Kansas Horizon Award Program is a regional competition that honors 32 novice teachers across the state. The regions correspond to the state’s four U.S. congressional districts.
Please join us in congratulating Mrs. Daley!
