The Mokena Board of Education recognized the recipients of the Galaxy Award at last night’s meeting. This award is for those who contribute to the District 159 community in an impactful way. Five of the recipients were Mr. Shaughnessy, Mr. Martinus, Ms. Blyth, Mrs. Schoenecker, and Mrs. Rodriquez from Mokena Junior High. These teachers all served as teacher mentors to the Lincoln-Way East Teaching Internship students this school year. “They were among 60 nominees for the award, and were well deserving in taking on 20 interns in an uncertain school year with new and unusual circumstances,” said Missy Rowell, Lincoln-Way FACS Department Chair. “The Teaching Internship students nominated these outstanding teachers for taking on a new adventure and being great leaders and mentors as they learned what it takes to be a teacher.”
Congratulations to Lincoln-Way East alumnus Ryan Braun (class of 2017) for being named a Fulbright U.S. Student Program finalist for 2021-2022. Braun is one of two Newcomb-Tulane College undergraduate students selected. Each grantee will receive funds from the Fulbright Student Program, the U.S. government’s flagship international educational exchange program, to either study abroad, conduct an individually designed research project, or participate in an English Teaching Assistant Program outside the U.S. Braun will be teaching in Andorra, one of the world's smallest countries nestled high up in the Pyrenees Mountains between Spain and France. His outside-of-classroom project will be looking at the similarities and differences between American and Andorran forms of pre-hospital emergency medicine. “Even before I committed to Tulane, I knew I wanted to eventually apply for a competitive scholarship,” says Braun. “I gravitated toward the Fulbright Program because of its global breadth and impact on international diplomacy. Receiving a Fulbright Fellowship is a tremendous honor that speaks to both the strength of the degree and Tulane's scholarship advising program. For me, the opportunity to represent the United States abroad is one that culminates my 4 years of hard work and dedication here in New Orleans.” Since its inception in 1946, the Fulbright Student Program has operated in 160+ countries and provided 400,000+ scholars the opportunity to learn, interchange ideas, and engage in cultural exchange with 8,000 annually awarded scholarships and grants.
