The Bill Harris Fund for Excellence in
Teaching and Coaching
Middle School science teacher Bill Harris excelled at keeping students actively engaged by providing transformative experiences for multiple generations of Hilltoppers. His disciplined approach to teaching gave our students a foundation to grow as learners, and he set countless middle schoolers on a path of academic success in all subject areas. For many years, he also taught and mentored EA athletes and imparted not only sport-specific lessons, but also the crucial life skills learned through team participation.
Recipients will embrace the importance of learning inside and outside of the classroom, and will be teacher/coaches who seek to create opportunities for student-athletes.
