The winners of the 2019 GCOI Future Innovator and Teacher of the Year awards have been announced!

I wish to thank all of this year’s students for the great job they have done when responding to the judge’s questions. I hope you all will continue to follow the STEM choices you have made and that you have great success in your chosen field of study.

In addition, the teachers selected for this year’s honors have gone that extra mile to help students prepare for success in their STEM fields while also helping other teachers improve their teaching methods.

Regards,
Ray Quackenbush
