Matthew Harvey (CA '15) │Math teacher, CORE Butte Charter School │Chico, CA
Date of Award: November 18, 2015
Matt Harvey, who teaches upper-level math, had only been at CORE Butte High School for a year when Lowell Milken, chairman and co-founder of the Milken Family Foundation (above right) surprised him with the Milken Educator Award. But in that year Harvey had already made a big impact: For the first time ever, the school ran two sections of Math 3, both filled to capacity. He works with his colleagues in other disciplines to integrate math into English, history, health and science lessons. Partnering with Butte Community College, Harvey also set up the school’s Medical Sciences CTE (Career and Technical Education) pathway.
