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.

Molly DeBono, a teacher at Erie Elementary in Clinton Township is this week's Michigan Lottery Excellence in Education award winner. In her nomination video, Stacy Zwicker says, "Last March when Corona hit and we were thrown a curve-ball and sent home Molly DeBono made that transition for us parents with ease."

Molly commented, "Last Spring through us all for a whirlwind right so I just did everything I could to make it feel as normal of an end-of-the-year as I could"

Molly was recognized with a $1,500 check from the Michigan Lottery and her school will receive a $500 grant!
