2017-18 Milken EducatorsPhoto 34 of 44
A Halloween surprise: On October 31, 2017, Dr. Jane Foley named Melanie Cole Pennsylvania's 2017-18 Milken Educator Award recipient at Slippery Rock Area High School in front of a roaring crowd packed with students, staff and visiting dignitaries. A special education teacher and transition coordinator, Melanie is known as a fierce advocate for her students, helping them connect with local businesses, post-secondary educational opportunities and military personnel to launch them into the world after high school. Veteran Milken Educators gave Melanie a very warm welcome to the family: Jayda Pugliese (PA '16), last year's recipient, drove seven hours each way to be there!
