The Michigan Lottery has played a big role in funding education in our state, which is why it has teamed up with MSU Men's Basketball Coach, Tom Izzo, and FOX 47 News to recognize excellent educators state-wide.

Mark Honeyman, a teacher at West Hills Middle School in Bloomfield Hills, is this week's Michigan Lottery Excellence in Education award winner. He wants students to think of his class as their sanctuary, a safe haven, a place where they can come and let their truest self shine.

Mark was recognized with a $1,500 check from the Michigan Lottery and his class will receive a $500 grant!

The Excellence in Education award is sponsored by the Michigan Lottery, proud to provide more than $20 billion to support public education since 1972!
