Ms. Cook Wins AIAA Foundation Educator Achievement Award
Three K–12 educators from across the United States have won the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Foundation Educator Achievement Awards, honoring their efforts to promote science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education.
This year’s honorees each received $5,000 for themselves as well as $5,000 for their respective schools. LRSD's Charlotte Cook, teacher at Carver Magnet School, won for “bringing STEM practices to our school, district, and community by utilizing AIAA and other resources that open students’ eyes to endless possibilities.”
The AIAA Foundation Educator Achievement Award recognizes K–12 educators for outstanding contributions to the continued study of STEM subjects among America’s youth. Each of these teachers has had a significant impact on creating the next generation of aerospace professionals who will shape our community’s future. Since 1997, the award has honored more than 65 educators from the United States.
Congrats, Ms. Cook!
