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.
Nicole Ames-Powell, a certified STEM administrator for Detroit Public Schools, is this week's Michigan Lottery Excellence in Education award winner. She goes above and beyond her assigned duties to help her students.
Nicole 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!
