The Michigan Lottery has played a big role in funding education in our state, which is why it has teamed up with MSU Men's Basketball Coach, Tom Izzo, and FOX 47 News to recognize excellent educators state-wide.
Sirrita Darby, a humanities teacher at Detroit Leadership Academy in Wayne County, is this week's Michigan Lottery Excellence in Education award winner. Her mentorship and dedication have made a lasting impact on her students.
Darby was recognized with a $500 check from the Michigan Lottery and her class will receive a $500 grant!
The Excellence in Education award is sponsored by the Michigan Lottery, proud to provide more than $20 billion to support public education since 1972!
