2017-18 Milken Educators

Photo 39 of 44 Tennessee Katherine Watkins


Also on November 16, 2017, we surprised Katherine Watkins at Millington Central High School with a Tennessee Milken Educator Award and $25,000 in front of the entire school. Students, staff and guests raised the roof with cheers and applause for their beloved English teacher, who teaches AP Lit, Dual Enrollment and 11th-grade English, as well as serving as advisor to the yearbook and National Honor Society and coaching Knowledge Bowl. "There is no profession as rewarding as teaching," Katherine told the assembly. "It is my pride and my honor to be able to do that work here at Millington."
