Milo's Bovee Receives Award

"To teach is to change a life," and some teachers especially exemplify this saying and deserve to be recognized. Jeff Bovee, Milo Adventist Academy English teacher, received this recognition recently when he was honored with the annual Excellence in Teaching Award by the Adventist Alumni Association.

Bovee was one of two teachers the North American Division sent to the national ceremony, where he received a medallion and award money.

This year Bovee also received a nomination for Who’s Who Among High School Teachers. "There are so many great teachers out there. It feels strange to be singled out," he admitted. "It feels like a great honor."

Throughout his years at Milo, where he once attended and graduated, Bovee has touched students’ lives and educated them about real life as well as academics. He relates well to the students and is friends with many of them. He is truly a blessing.
