Kansas Horizon Award
Mrs. Scotti (Twombly) Hanf received her phone call from Kansas Commissioner of Education Dr. Randy Watson yesterday with the exciting news of her Kansas Horizon Award nomination. Hiawatha USD 415 Congratulates Scotti on this achievement. We are proud of the hard work and dedication Scotti has displayed.
The Kansas Horizon Award program, sponsored by KSDE, allows all school districts in the state an opportunity to nominate one elementary and one secondary teacher for the award. To be eligible for the award, teachers must have successfully completed their first year of teaching and have performed in such a way as to distinguish themselves as outstanding.
The program is a regional competition with four regions corresponding to the state’s U.S. congressional districts. Four elementary and four secondary classroom teachers may be selected for the award from each region.
