The Myrtle Clark award was established by a former student to honor Miss Myrtle Clark, a former mathematics teacher at Lincoln Northeast High School and Jackson High School. The award is given to recognize excellence in mathematics teaching and provide a source of funding for LPS mathematics educators for summer school courses to advance teaching skills or for the pursuit of an advanced degree in mathematics.
This award is available to Lincoln Public Schools Mathematics Educators.
Nominations may be submitted by any individual or group. Self-nominations are accepted.
The selection committee will be facilitated by the Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools Scholarships & Awards Committee, with input from the LPS Curriculum Specialist for Mathematics.
