LANSING, Mich. — 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.
Jill Shreffler, a teacher at Gier Elementary in Hillsdale is this week's Michigan Lottery Excellence in Education award winner. In her nomination video Mindy Eggleston says, "Your classroom is stimulating and lively. Congratulations!"
Jill commented "It is not just about reading and math, its about developing people and helping them become the best that they can be. I don't look at it as a job but more as a part of who I am."
Jill was recognized with a $1,500 check from the Michigan Lottery and her school will receive a $500 grant!
The Excellence in Education award is sponsored by the Michigan Lottery, proud to provide more than $23 billion to support public education since 1972!
