Teacher at Xavier College Prep Recieves Excellence in Education Award

Congratulations to Laurie White of Xavier College Prep in Phoenix, for receiving December’s Excellence in Education Award. Former student, Michelle Cantelme, nominated Mrs. White because of her dedication to each individual student.

 “Mrs. White is a teacher who truly makes a difference with her students. She wants all of her students to be successful. You can always count on her to be there from the beginning to the end,” said Cantelme.

Excellence in Education is a partnership between Rio Salado College and KEZ 99.9 FM, which recognizes Valley teachers. Students and parents of students are encouraged to nominate K-12 teachers who are excellent at their profession and have gone above-and-beyond the call of duty to make a difference in their community.

Each month, a Valley K-12 teacher will be selected from all the entries to be recognized for their outstanding contribution to education. KEZ’s Marty Manning will visit the teacher’s school to surprise them with their “Excellence in Education” Award. The surprise visit will be broadcast during the Beth and Friends Show. All winning teachers are rewarded with $99, an Excellence in Education Award, and a Rio Salado College gift bag.
