Summerside Elementary School teacher Donald Koller has been chosen to receive the University of Cincinnati’s USA Outstanding Educator Award.
Nominated by 22-year old Union Township resident and University of Cincinnati senior Kevin Kew, Koller is one of three teachers from around the greater Cincinnati area to be honored with the award this year.
In the early fall, the University of Cincinnati asked all graduating seniors around the region to nominate a former teacher who has in some way positively affected their lives and nurtured their love for education.
“We encouraged graduates to nominate a former teacher from pre-school through 12th grade who fueled their love for education and inspired them to continue on the path to a higher education,” said UC President Nancy Zimpher. “Due to the outstanding nomination submitted by Kevin Kew, one of this year’s honorees will be Donald Koller.”
