A $3,000 Herb Kohl Educational Foundation 2016 Fellowship was presented to Bay Port High School Orchestra director, Audrey Nowak, at a recent recognition luncheon hosted by former U.S. Senator Herb Kohl.
The Herb Kohl Fellowship recognizes teachers who have demonstrated superior ability to inspire love of learning in their students, have motivated others, and have provided meritorious service both inside and outside the classroom.
The Herb Kohl Educational Foundation has been recognizing educational excellence annually since 1990, awarding fellowships to 100 Wisconsin teachers and matching grants to each fellow’s school. Since it was established in 1990, the Herb Kohl Educational Foundation has awarded $10.2 million to Wisconsin students, teachers, and schools.
