Education briefs for Oct. 27


Jordan High School educator named Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction

Hailey-Ann Booth, an educator at Jordan High School, was recently selected as a Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction by The National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS).

Booth, who is also the school’s Career Technology Education (CTE) department chair and the Jordan High School 2021 Teacher of the Year, was nominated by a student for her outstanding devotion and commitment to being a role model for her students.

Each year, student members of NSHSS are invited to nominate educators who have made the most significant contribution to their academic success for the Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction award. This award recognizes those exemplary educators whose passion inspires students to strive for success.

“Being selected for this award is truly an honor,” Booth said. “Guiding students in one of the most transitional periods of their lives is my priority. My passion is to inspire students to grow and develop as leaders, and it is extremely rewarding to be able to contribute to their academic career.”

The NSHSS seeks to advance the goals and aspirations of high-achieving students through unique learning experiences, scholarships, internships, international study and peer networks. NSHSS is continually seeking new ways to provide lifetime learning and growth opportunities for academically talented and accomplished student leaders, and the educators who support them.
