Herzog Foundation Hosts Second Annual Excellence in Christian Education Awards Gala

The Herzog Foundation hosted its second annual Excellence in Christian Education Awards Gala at Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C. on Sept. 30. At the gala, the Herzog Foundation recognized its 12 Christian Teachers of the Year:

“Each of our 2023 Christian Teachers of the Year have made remarkable impacts on Christian education, their schools, students, and communities,” said Herzog Foundation President Darrell Jones. “Each teacher has a unique story and skill set that they bring to their classrooms.”

Of the 12 Teachers of the Year, seven hold master’s degrees. Some have taught for over 40 years, and some of their teaching careers are only just beginning. Collectively, the Teachers of the Year represent eight different states: Georgia, Iowa, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin.

In addition to their designations as 2023 Herzog Foundation Teachers of the Year, John Elliott, vice chairman of the Herzog Foundation Board of Directors, announced at the gala that each teacher and their schools will receive $2,500.

“Thank you to the 12 Christian Teachers of the Year for being such positive influences in the lives of our nation’s students,” said special guest William Barr in a virtual address. “More than that, what you’re doing is essential to the most fundamental right we have: religious liberty. To anyone of faith, there’s nothing more important than passing the faith on to your children. That is the greatest gift you can give your children, and it is your highest duty to God.”
