Graphics instructor gets the Hero Award
Tom Lamont, instructor at the Design Technology program Blackstone Valley Regional Vocational Technical High School in Upton, Massachusetts, is one of three national winners of the 2023 eSchool News K-12 Hero Award. The award recognizes teachers who use innovative educational strategies to help students advance. Tom’s hands-on approach to learning sign making skills has made the program especially successful.
Mike came to the teaching profession from the sign industry, bringing practical knowledge and skills to his students—along with a desire to help students succeed. The program that he has developed has earned recognition from both the educational world and the local business community. Many of his students have gone directly from the program into jobs in the industry.
