Amanda ThrunTravis Drilingas
Edwardsville High School
English teacher, yearbook/publications advisor
I nominate Amanda Thrun because had it not been for her excellent journalism program, I would have never realized my passion at such a young age. I was well prepared to study journalism in college, and I credit much of my success throughout college to the experiences and lessons I learned in her classes. Some of my favorite high school memories took place in her classroom, and I still carry them with me five years later!
