Hamilton High School communication arts teacher Debbie Figueroa was named a state winner in the 2010 Kohl Teacher Fellowship Program sponsored by the Herb Kohl Educational Foundation.

Figueroa was among 100 Wisconsin teachers chosen because of her superior ability to motivate people, inspire a love of learning and provide leadership and service within and outside the classroom. Figueroa and Hamilton High School were each awarded a $1,000 grant.

The Kohl Foundation Scholarship and Fellowship Program was established by U.S. Senator Herb Kohl in 1990. To date, the foundation has awarded $6 million to Wisconsin educators, students and schools. Recipients are selected by a statewide committee composed of civic leaders and representatives of education-related associations and the program’s co-sponsors: The Wisconsin Newspaper Association, Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, Wisconsin Council of Religious and Independent Schools and regional Cooperative Educational Service Agencies.
