2015 Distinguished Students and Educators Named

For years while Don Foucar was a principal at Helena Middle School and the Project for Alternative Learning, he paraded the halls of Helena’s schools alongside the Helena Education Foundation and recognized teachers. Wednesday morning, Foucar received that recognition himself.

“This is your year,” HEF executive director Lisa Cordingley told him.

Cordingley and other members of the HEF traveled to several Helena-area schools on Wednesday to surprise teachers who were nominated by current or former students as “Distinguished Educators.”
