To honor the outstanding work District 11 teachers do, and in recognition of the influence they have on our youth, the Rotary Club of Colorado Springs sponsors the “Diamond Award – A Cut Above.” For this award, students nominate teachers who have inspired them, and members of the awards committee announce winners by arriving in a classroom to advise students that their teacher is a Diamond Award winner. Annually, recipients are selected from each of the District 11 high schools and the Roy J. Wasson Academic Campus. The awards are officially presented at a Rotary luncheon, where the teachers have an opportunity to talk with local community and business leaders about the state of education and their passion for teaching.
The 2019 Diamond Award recipients are: Kyle Yeh, Coronado High School; Steve Ottmer and Sarah Ortiz, Doherty High School, Kaitlin Harrington, Mitchell High School; Melissa Garlock, Palmer High School; and James Owino, Odyssey Early College and Career Options.
