Duval County Teacher Recognized as Educator of Distinction

Melissa Kennedy, a chemistry teacher at Stanton College Preparatory, has been named a 2007 Coca-Cola Educator of Distinction by the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. Kennedy is one of only 250 educators from across the country chosen to receive the award that recognizes outstanding teachers dedicated to providing education with an enhanced purpose.

Kennedy received a commemorative gift from the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation and a plaque inscribed with a personal dedication written by 2007 Coca-Cola Scholar and recent Stanton College Preparatory graduate John Song.

In its eighth year, the Educator of Distinction Award is made possible from a grant provided by the Joseph B. Whitehead Foundation.
