Western & Southern Financial Group named veteran teacher Kimya Moyo this year’s winner of the Dr. Lawrence C. Hawkins Educator of the Year Award, an honor than comes along with a no-strings-attached $10,000 check.
Moyo, a math teacher at Woodward Career Technical High School, beat out 54 other teachers and administrators in Cincinnati Public Schools who were nominated by their peers.
She was selected for her innovative approach to education and ongoing commitment to students, according to the company.
It’s the second year Western & Southern has given the award, after creating it last year to inspire the district’s individual educators.
Last year, Withrow University High School Principal Sharon Johnson won the award.
