Rep. Lightner announces monthly Outstanding Educator Award

Categories: Lightner News

Today, state Rep. Sarah Lightner announced she will recognize local educators as part of her monthly Outstanding Educator Award. Residents of the 65th House District can nominate educators who make a difference in their lives, and each month, one will be presented with a state tribute in appreciation of their service to the community.

“Our educators sacrifice so much to help prepare the next generation,” Rep. Lightner said. “We recently celebrated Teacher Appreciation Day, but I believe their hard work and dedication deserve to be recognized throughout the year. This opportunity to shed a little more light on the tremendous work being done by our educators is exciting!”

All residents are invited to submit nominations for educators living in the 65th House District by visiting Rep. Lightner’s website at and filling out the Outstanding Educator Award form. For questions or more information, residents may contact the representative’s office by calling (517) 373-1775 or emailing
