Devoted educator surprised with award for decades of support for Dr. King celebration program

Fairview Teacher

Milwaukee Public Schools, the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts and McDonald’s Restaurants of Southeastern Wisconsin surprised a teacher Wednesday morning with recognition for long-standing support of the annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration event through student-oriented programming.

The award is presented each year to a teacher who has contributed annually to the writing, speech and or art competitions and incorporated the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. program into his or her teaching curriculum.

This year’s winner is Ms. Constance Michaud, a first grade teacher at MPS’ Fairview School.

Dedicated to the program for 31 years, Ms. Michaud has displayed loyal commitment to the event's art and writing contests by encouraging her students both individually and in her school community as a whole. Her students have frequently submitted contest-winning entries over the years.

For her exceptional efforts and dedication to the program, Fairview Principal Ebbie L. Wells, representatives from the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts and Ronald McDonald recognized Ms. Michaud with a plaque and other gifts. The award is sponsored by McDonald’s Restaurants of Southeastern Wisconsin.  

This year will mark the 32nd Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday Celebration in Milwaukee - one of just two cities that have celebrated the holiday annually since 1984.
