In May, Cody Medicine and Community Health Academy social studies teacher Michelle A. Shorter, was named the 2018 Fred Martin Educator of the Year at the Coleman A. Young Foundation (CAYF) Annual Awards Experience. Ms. Shorter was nominated by two of her students, and received this prestigious award which honors Detroit education professionals who go above and beyond the call of duty to provide quality developmental experiences to Detroit youth.
The Coleman A. Young Foundation further acknowledges Ms. Shorter because she exemplifies the leadership characteristics and spirit of the late Mayor Coleman A. Young, by going the extra mile, motivating students to achieve their potential, helping them overcome obstacles and challenging them to reach their goals.
Congratulations, Ms. Shorter and thank you for your dedication and service to our students.
