​BCPS Educators Nominated for National Life Group Foundation’s LifeChanger of the Year

Friday, October 30, 2015
Congratulations to Sawgrass Springs Middle School science teacher, Judy Bremner and Bair Middle School guidance counselor, Evy Lenoff for being nominated for the 2015/16 national LifeChanger of the Year award.

Sponsored by the National Life Group Foundation, the LifeChanger of the Year program recognizes and rewards the very best K- 12 public and private school educators and employees across the United States, who are making a difference in the lives of students by exemplifying excellence, positive influence and leadership.

Bremner has been an advocate for health and wellness for more than 15 years. She established a body management course at Sawgrass Springs Middle to help improve the health of students, with a focus on young girls. She has rallied the community together for a large event benefiting youth empowerment and the fight against obesity, donated gifts to a student whose family experienced financial difficulties, and paid the electricity bill of another student who used an overdue bill to register for classes.

Nominated by a parent, Lenoff is said to be a leader among her peers, encouraging those around her to strive for the best each day. She is supportive, understanding and sympathetic to the needs of the school and the community. Lenoff also makes it a top priority to stay informed about the latest trends, methodologies and strategies in education.

Each school year, the LifeChanger of the Year program receives hundreds of nominations. This year, a total of 16 winners will be chosen by the selection committee to receive cash awards that are split between the individual winner and their school. The national Grand Prize award is $10,000. The top five winners will also be honored at a national awards ceremony. Winners will be announced in spring 2016.
