IMPACT Teacher Named Claes Nobel Education of Distinction
Gaye Scribner, English II teacher at IMPACT Early College High School, was recently selected as a Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction by The National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS). A role model to students, Gaye was nominated by Alexis Lee, a senior at IMPACT, for her outstanding dedication and commitment to excellence in the profession.
Each year student members of NSHSS are invited to nominate the educator who has made the most significant contribution to their academic career for the Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction award. This honor recognizes exemplary educators whose passion and devotion inspire their students to grow and develop as scholars, leaders and citizens.
“I nominated Ms. Scribner because she’s really compassionate. She always takes the time to listen to her students even if she’s really busy,” said Alexis Lee. “She takes time to explain things to you when you’re struggling, and she understands that everyone is not on the same level.”
The NSHSS seeks to advance the goals and aspirations of high-achieving students through unique learning experiences, scholarships, internships, international study and peer networks. From attending the Nobel Week festivities in Stockholm to internships with major corporations and government agencies, pre-college summer study programs and more than $2,000,000 in exclusive scholarships awarded annually, 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.
“Dedicated educators who exhibit a commitment to excellence deserve our highest praise and appreciation,” said NSHSS President James W. Lewis. “Through our Educators of Distinction program and the grants we provide to support professional development and enrich classroom instruction, we hope to acknowledge and encourage the vital work of the teachers, counselors and administrators who are shaping the intellect and character of our young scholars.”
The NSHSS, formed in 2002 by James W. Lewis and Claes Nobel, senior member of the family that established the Nobel Prizes, recognizes academic excellence at the high school level and helps to advance the goals and aspirations of high-achieving millennials through unique learning experiences, scholarships, internships, international study and peer networks.
