Horizon Nominees

District Leadership was proud to surprise our 2024 Horizon Award nominees. Congratulations to Jasmine Banks, 1st grade teacher at Wineteer Elementary, and Robert Shay, Social Studies teacher at Derby High School.

This program, supported by the Kansas State Department of Education, celebrates exemplary first-year educators who have demonstrated outstanding teaching in their elementary and secondary classrooms. Nominated teachers will submit applications, due in October, and the winners will receive special recognition at the KEEN State Education Conference in February in Topeka.
