LANSING, Mich. — Jay Obsniuk is this week’s Michigan Lottery Excellence in Education winner.

Jay, there’s a video that your nominator sent in. let’s take a look.

My name is Kevin Reamer. I nominated Mr. O because of everything he has done for the team. He encourages us to keep trying and not give up.

What do you think when you see that?

It’s humbling to say the least. and, i love showing kids they can do stuff they never thought they could do. Basically, i just love being there with the kids. it’s something i enjoy doing each and every day. You know, our world is advancing in technology each and every day. So, it opens up many, many doors for the kids. nobody teaches for rewards, but it’s so nice to get that pat on the back and know that you’re helping out somebody.

Jay Obsniuk receives a $1,500 check from the Michigan Lottery and his class at Plymouth-Canton Community school receives a $500 grant.

Excellence in Education awards sponsored by the Michigan Lottery. Providing more than 22 billion dollars to public education since 1972.
