Upper school English teacher Jim Young and science teacher Dr. Marjorie MacGregor have been selected for the University of Chicago's Outstanding Educator Award. According to a release from the university, each year, newly admitted students have the opportunity to "reflect on their time in school and nominate an educator who played a significant role in their education, made a positive impact in their lives, and whose influence has brought them to where they are today. The university deeply appreciates the lively minds who thirst for knowledge that these educators have nurtured and inspired. We thank them for going above and beyond the call of duty every day and leaving an impression that will be carried over a lifetime."
Award winners will receive a commemorative award, certificate and letter that includes details from the students who nominated them. A virtual event celebrating Jim, Marjorie and all of the winners will be held Wednesday, Oct. 21. Congratulations, Jim and Marjorie!
