McAdoo of Quail run collects $25,000 education prize

June 27, 2001


Physical education teacher Jeff McAdoo has been rewarded for his dedication to Lawrence children with a $25,000 check.

McAdoo, who teaches at Quail Run School, was among 155 U.S. educators honored at a black-tie event Tuesday in Los Angeles sponsored by the Milken Family Foundation. Each teacher pocketed $25,000 checks.

In October, McAdoo learned of the award at a surprise school assembly attended by 500 students and teachers.

McAdoo was among three Kansans in the group. The others: Alice Bertels, a Topeka elementary teacher, and Nancy Harman, a Hays elementary principal.
