2024 Recipients

Jim Hill

Lincoln Southwest 
Spanish Teacher
Nominated By: Principal John Matzen

When you walk into Mr. Hill's classroom the walls are covered with half sheets of paper in a variety of colors. When you look closer you will see that these are expressions of gratitude from students to one another for helping each other learn and grow. This is just one of many ways that Mr. Hill inspires the Southwest community. He instills a passion to learn in his Spanish students, as well as reinforcing values of inclusivity and positivity. As a member of the Southwest Culture Committee, Mr. Hill strives to bring that same energy to staff connectivity. Southwest is truly fortunate to have a gifted educator like Mr. Hill serve our students.
