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.
Susan Clausen, a teacher at Ironwood Area Schools in Gogebic is this week's Michigan Lottery Excellence in Education award winner. In her nomination letter, it says, "You've done such an incredible job to navigate not only the material but you've made it so comfortable and easy for your students."
Susan responded, "I'm happy to see I’m making a difference that's awesome, that's why we do what we do!"
Susan was recognized with a $1,500 check from the Michigan Lottery and her school will receive a $500 grant!
