Williams named ‘Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction’

Tanya Williams of Brady High School has been selected as a ‘Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction’ by the National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS). A role model to pupils, Mrs. Williams was nominated by student Kristen Newman for outstanding dedication and committment to excellence in teaching. The Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction award recognizes teachers who have made a lasting difference in their classrooms by encouraging students to strive for excellence. Student members of NSHSS have the opportunity to nominate the one educator who has made the most significant contribution to their academic career. This award, bestowed by the society upon the recommendation of a member, allows the students themselves to recognize the commitments, strengths and gifts of their teachers, providing an opportunity for them to recognize and thank their academic mentors. What makes this award unique is that it is an honor bestowed upon an outstanding educator by a young scholar. ‘Dedicated educators who exhibit a commitment to excellence deserve our highest praise and appreciation,’ said NSHSS Chair Claes Nobel. ‘We’re excited to provide an ongoing means to do so, and we encourage our members to nominate teachers who have been pivotal to their academic success.’
