One educator can make a profound difference. Educators inspire, guide, teach and lead. They also transform lives. By honoring education professionals – from teachers and coaches to librarians and counselors – Peabody Energy recognizes the heroes in education who help children achieve their true potential. On Monday, Oct. 17, 2011, Ladue Horton Watkins High School social studies teacher Dr. Eric Hahn was presented with the Peabody Energy Leader in Education award.
The Leaders in Education program rewards dedicated and compassionate educational professionals with grants and recognition at an annual dinner reception. Award recipients are selected throughout the school year by a committee of top educators and business leaders and each earn a $1,000 grant.
