The Michigan Lottery has played a big role in funding education in our state, which is why it has teamed up with FOX 47 News to recognize excellent educators state-wide.
Paula Holland, a teacher at State Street Academy in Bay City, is this week's Michigan Lottery Excellence in Education award winner. She works to give her students the same special gift that her teachers gave her in elementary school.
Paula was recognized with a $1,500 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!
