Pass Christian High School.

Dr. Killebrew, principal of Pass Christian High School, is named a Milken Educator 'Oscars of Teaching' and receives a $25K award!

State Superintendent of Education Dr. Carey Wright and Milken Educator Awards Senior Vice President Dr. Jane Foley surprised Killebrew with the news at a school assembly Friday morning. 

She's one of only 44 educator across the country receiving the award.

The $25,000 Milken award is an unrestricted cash award, and recipients can use the money however they wish. Educators cannot apply for the recognition and don't even know when they're being considered. Candidates come in through a confidential selection process and are reviewed by blue ribbon panels appointed by state departments of education. The final approval comes from the Milken Family Foundation.

We could not be more proud to our one and only Dr. Killebrew, Congratulations!
