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.
Kerri Moccio, a teacher at Bedford Elementary, is this year's Michigan Lottery Excellence in Education award winner. Since Kerri gives so much, she is this year's excellence in education award winner.
Kerri was recognized with a $10,000 check from the Michigan Lottery and her class.
The Excellence in Education award is sponsored by the Michigan Lottery, proud to provide more than $20 billion to support public education since 1972!
