A Lake Highlands Junior High educator has won a Richardson ISD STARS Teacher Recognition Award.

The award recognizes innovation in the classroom. The Excellence in Education Foundation annually awards $1,000 to each recipient selected from nominations at all teaching levels.

Awards are limited to 10 teachers who have completed two years in RISD regardless of grade, subject or assignment.

LHJH choir teacher Kelly Moss was awarded yesterday, according to a tweet by school principal Nick Rustin.
