Mike joined with students at the Kirk Adams Elementary School in Las Vegas to give the "thumbs up" to principal Rebecca Johnson (right) for winning a Milken Educator Award. Johnson has implemented numerous reforms resluting in higher student achievement - her graduating sixth graders had a 94 percent passing rate at the local middle school - and a teacher turnover rate under 10 percent. Since 1987, more than 2,500 outstanding kindergarten-through-12th-grade educators nationwide have been recognized and celebrated with unrestricted, individual Milken Educator Awards of $25,000.
