Andie Chung, an educator at Apache Junction High School, was recently selected as a Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction by The National Society of High School Scholars.

A role model to pupils, she was nominated by a student for outstanding dedication and commitment to excellence in the profession, according to a release.

Each year student members of NSHSS are invited to nominate the educator who has made the most significant contribution to their academic career for the Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction award.

The honor recognizes exemplary educators whose passion and devotion inspire their students to grow and develop as scholars, leaders and citizens, according to the release.

“Dedicated educators who exhibit a commitment to excellence deserve our highest praise and appreciation,” NSHSS President James W. Lewis said in the release.

“Through our Educators of Distinction program and the grants we provide to support professional development and enrich classroom instruction, we hope to acknowledge and encourage the vital work of the teachers, counselors and administrators who are shaping the intellect and character of our young scholars,” he said.
