Milken Family Foundation Honors Exemplary Educators With Jewish Educator Awards

Photo 6 of 12 Family congratulate Kelly Shepard Santa Monica, California, September 21, 2015

Shepard is joined by his wife, Naomi (standing in back), and two daughters Lindsay and Sydney — who rushed to the stage to give their father a congratulatory hug. Lindsay and Sydney are students at Milken Community High and Naomi is the performing arts teacher at Milken Middle School.

"I love being wowed by kids, and it happens all the time," Shepard said.
