Maria Ung, a Science teacher at Essex High School, was surprised at an all-school assembly Monday with a $25,000 Milken Family Foundation National Educator Award.Commissioner Vilaseca was joined by Dr. Jane Foley, Senior Vice President of the Milken Family Foundation, in presenting the award. Principal Rob Reardon convened the visit to the school without disclosing the true purpose, as required by Milken. An educator at Essex High School for eight years, Ung was recognized for being a role model to her students, especially young women, who are interested in science. She serves as the Science co-chair at Essex and as the varsity cheerleading coach. ‘Maria’s work to date has demonstrated excellence in teaching and leadership,’ said Principal Reardon. ‘Her knowledge, conscientious approach, work ethic and desire is a formula that is conducive to a long, productive career in education.’ State Departments of Education recommend candidates to the Foundation. This was the seventh year that Vermont has participated in the awards process. Milken Educator Award recipients may use their unrestricted $25,000 award in any way they wish. First awarded in 1987, the Milken Family Foundation National Educator Awards were created to reward, retain and attract the highest quality K-12 educators to the profession. This year Milken awarded 40 new Milken Educator Awards in 48 states and the District of Columbia. Ung will also travel to Los Angeles in April to the Milken Educator Awards National Conference. http://www.mff.org/(link is external).

Another young, rich athlete seems to be on the path of total destruction. For whatever reason, Johnny Manziel has not been able to handle the spotlight that his college career thrust upon him. If you believe some of the stories that have been written about Manziel, his troubles began even before he signed the big contract with Cleveland.It has been a downhill spiral ever since he left college. Manziel should have been able to handle the spotlight better than others because he already was the darling of the national press when they dubbed him Johnny Football.On the other hand, maybe this is what caused the problem in the first place. Not many 20-year olds have the experience it takes to handle stardom and money at an early age. You only hope that he gets the help he needs before the hole he is digging gets so deep that he cannot climb out of it.

“It has been a meteoric rise for him this season,” added Allen. “It has been a case of perseverance, he has worked really hard. I have known him since he walked in the door at Spurs and saw the fantastic attitude he has towards improving. “Spurs have got the dividends of that, there are a number of people at the club who need a lot of credit and for his attitude to get to where he has got to today. “He deserves it, he has had a fantastic season and I’m sure he has a big career ahead of him. Every challenge that is put in front of him he has faced them and come through them. “He had some loan periods that didn’t go as well as he would have liked and had injuries to deal with as well – but they have been the making of him.” Press Association Clive Allen believes Tottenham striker Harry Kane faces a difficult season next year having established himself as a top marksman in the Premier League – but has backed him to continue his goalscoring feats. But heading into next season the Tottenham academy graduate will not be helped by the element of surprise and is very much a known quantity to opposing team – but Allen feels Kane possesses enough quality to still make an impact. “I think that is always the question that people are going to ask,” he told Press Association Sport when asked if Kane can replicate his form next year. “Obviously, the knowledge that clubs and certainly managers and coaches will have of Harry this season means he will be the man they try to stop next year so it will be a difficult one for him. “With the attitude and application he has shown he is a man who will score goals for the rest of his career and I’m sure he is now physically and mentally strong to deal with that. “You have seen him come into the England squad and he dealt with that – there was a furore about him coming in because of the form he was in domestically and rightly so. “He deserved his chance and when he has been given them he has taken them, he has had a brief taste of England and will want more – that will be the driving force in the future.” Allen, who spent four years at White Hart Lane, scoring 49 goals in the 1986-87 season and picking up the main PFA Player of the Year trophy was part of the coaching set-up at Tottenham when Kane first joined the club’s academy. He believes the application shown by the 21-year-old as he moved through the ranks has enabled him to establish himself in the first-team at White Hart Lane. The 30-goal forward was crowned PFA Young Player of the Year on Sunday evening after becoming an integral part of the Spurs set-up and scoring 79 seconds into his England debut. Kane did not score in the league until November but has been in scintillating form since, drawing the spotlight onto his ability to take chances when they fall his way.
