24th Annual Educator of the Year
The Educator of the Year program, now in its 24th year, was founded by the Kiwanis Club of Las Vegas in 1992 to recognize outstanding “Unsung Education Heroes” at the High School level in the Clark County School District (CCSD). The program was the brainchild of Kiwanian Ned L. Jacobs, who had been Director of Kaplan Education Corporation in San Diego before becoming Executive Director of the Lied Children’s Discovery Museum in Las Vegas.
