Rae "Kimo" Ormsby Awarded for Excellence

Congratulations to Rae "Kimo" Ormsby of Shadow Mountain High School in Phoenix for winning the 99.9 FM KEZ Excellence in Education Award for September 2012.

Ormsby, was nominated by Amber Kalsow who is a student in Ormsby's Spanish class.


In Kaslow's nomination letter she acknowledged her teacher for his desire to change students' lives through his Spanish class and give them the best education.

"This course has not only taught me Spanish but it has also made me learn a lot about myself.  Kimo makes you think in depth.  Kimo is not a person who looks at teaching as his only a job.  It is what he loves to do."
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.


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.
