CEHD alum wins Milken award

Martha Spriggs (M.Ed. '03), a math teacher at Andersen United Community School, Minneapolis, is the latest college alum to win the prestigious Milken National Educator Award.

Among her achievements, Spriggs was recognized for outstanding results in the classroom, where 82 percent of her eighth-grade students reach state target scores, and for establishing an after-school science program for girls.

The Milken Family Foundation National Educator Awards were established in 1987 by Lowell Milken to recognize the importance of outstanding educators and encourage talented young people to enter the teaching profession.
