A Jericho High School guidance counselor has received the 2013 Yale Educator Award, which recognizes educators from around the world.
Deborah Lisa-Brown was chosen by the Yale Office of Undergraduate Admissions for inspiring and supporting her students to achieve excellence.
“As our committee reviewed nominations, we were constantly reminded of the unique and critical role that exceptional educators play in shaping their students’ futures by encouraging them to pursue their goals,” said Mark Dunn, Senior Assistant Director of Yale Undergraduate Admissions.
Colleen McCormack, a student who graduated Jericho High School in 2013 and entered Yale’s class of 2017 this fall, nominated Lisa-Brown for this award.
