SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY MAY 23, 2018

Barnes & Noble has named Lem Andrews from Booker High School in Sarasota, FL, as the 2018 national winner and “Teacher of the Year” in the Barnes & Noble My Favorite Teacher Contest. Andrews was nominated by his former student, Ellen Bausback, and was chosen from more than 4,700 entries nationwide. From January 2018 to March 2018, Barnes & Noble invited students to nominate their favorite teacher by writing essays, poems or thank you letters that share how their teacher has influenced their life and why they appreciate and admire their teacher. Entries were accepted at Barnes & Noble stores, and were judged on the compelling nature of the teacher’s qualities, the sincerity of the student’s appreciation and the quality of expression and writing. Along with the title of “Teacher of the Year,” Andrews received $5,000 and was recognized at a special community celebration at his school. Andrews’ school, Booker High, also received $5,000 for a total prize of $10,000.
