By Alabama Public Radio
Mobile, AL – A Mobile math teacher has received one of the highest awards an educator can receive.
Michael Fletcher of Davidson High School was one of 100 nationwide winners of this year's Milken Family Foundation National Educator Award. The award comes with a 25-thousand dollar check. Fletcher was Alabama's lone winner this year.
The 27-year-old began teaching at Davidson six years ago after graduating from the University of South Alabama. He was presented the award Friday during a surprise assembly at the school. A shocked and surprised Fletcher says he didn't even know he had been nominated.
18 Alabama teacher have won the Milken Award since the state began taking part in the program in 1998.
