2017-18 Milken EducatorsPhoto 24 of 44
On November 21, 2017, at Jamestown High School in Jamestown, North Dakota, we named Principal Adam Gehlher the state's 2017-18 Milken Educator Award recipient and handed him a huge $25,000 check with his name on it. North Dakota Superintendent of Public Instruction Kirsten Baesler first met Adam six years ago, when he was a principal in West Fargo. "He gets how important it is to have good adults in students' lives to make sure they have all the opportunities they deserve," she said at his surprise notification. Now in his second year at Jamestown, Adam has focused his administrative career on connecting what students learn every day with the working world through innovative programs and internships.
