Blue Valley West’s Zac Johnson named Horizon Award winner

Blue Valley is known for having the very best educators and staff around. Last week, Blue Valley West teacher Zac Johnson was named a 2022 Horizon Award winner in the state of Kansas. The Horizon Award program, sponsored by the Kansas State Department of Education, recognizes 32 exemplary first-year teachers across the state who perform in a way that distinguishes them as outstanding. In the case of Johnson, it was his keen ability to build relationships and understand the diverse needs of every student that helped him excel in his first year of teaching and stand out as a Horizon Award winner. Don’t miss out on the chance to read more about Zac Johnson in the upcoming edition of Blue Valley Today, coming to all households in the district in late February!
