Date of Award: December 7, 2016
Lindsay Murray is committed to STEM education for elementary students. She was instrumental in the implementation of the Virginia Children's Engineering program, now part of the curriculum throughout her region's elementary schools, and she blends STEM with project-based learning in her classroom. At her surprise Award notification, Dr. Jane Foley, senior vice president of the Milken Educator Awards, asked her why STEM was so important for her students. "That's the way of the future," she said. "In the 21st century, those are the skills they are going to need."
