While June 4 was an important day in the lives of the Sturgeon Bay seniors graduating from high school, it was also a special one for a teacher who helped many of them get there. T.J. Walker Middle school science teacher Matt Propsom was awarded the Hervey Hauser Award during the commencement ceremony for being one of the best teachers in the district. Sturgeon Bay School District Superintendent Dan Tjernagel says his innovative ideas truly make him an outstanding individual.
Propsom was also instrumental in developing the middle school’s Science Buddies program, where his students help teach science concepts to the younger grades.
