McArthur High School’s Sarah Beauchamp Named Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction

Monday, April 13, 2015
Congratulations to Sarah Beauchamp, English teacher and debate coach at McArthur High School, for being named a Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction by The National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS). Beauchamp was honored at a recognition event on March 28, 2015, held at Florida International University in Miami.
Beauchamp was nominated by McArthur High student Leslie Gonzalez for outstanding dedication and commitment to excellence in the classroom. “She gives up all the time she has and makes sacrifices for her students whenever she is needed,’ said Gonzalez. “I can't think of any teacher who is as dedicated as she is, nor can I think of a teacher who cares more about her students.”
Student members of NSHSS have the opportunity to nominate a single educator who has made the most significant contribution to their academic career. The Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction award recognizes teacher role models who have made a lasting difference in their classrooms by encouraging students to strive for excellence.
"Dedicated educators who exhibit a commitment to excellence deserve our highest praise and appreciation," said NSHSS President James Lewis. "We're excited to provide an ongoing means to do so, and we encourage our members to nominate teachers who have contributed to their academic success."
The NSHSS recognizes academic excellence at the high school level and encourages members of the organization to apply their unique talents, vision and potential for the betterment of themselves and the world.
