A Bend math teacher is being honored by the President. Today President Obama announced the prestigious National Math and Science Awards. Sky View Middle School Math teacher Melinda Knapp is one of only 85 teachers throughout the country who were given this honor.  Winners of the Presidential honor receive a $10,000 award from the National Science Foundation to be used at their discretion. They also receive an expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C., for an awards ceremony and several days of educational and celebratory events. The educators will receive their awards in Washington, D.C. later this year. Knapp is the only Oregon teacher to win the award.
