Megan James (BAHT, '08) was honored by Symetra and the Seattle Seahawks on October 22nd for educational excellence in the Symetra Heroes in the Classroom program.
"Megan James is the teach I always hoped my son would have," said Jocelyn Shope, who nominated James. "Your first teacher paves the way for the rest of your education. If children think school is fun in kindergarten, as my son did, then they will be excited to return the next year. I have never seen anything like Ms. James. She truly loves her job and is always will to work with parents to make school fun for her students."
As part of the recognition, Ms. James received a $1,000 for books and supplies, as well as tickets to a Seahawks home game to be recognized on-field.
