Millo Higher College science teacher Kenneth Huff has earned one more honor: he has been chosen for a distinguished teaching award by the National Science Teaching Association.

Huff received the award Friday at the association’s conference in Arlington, Va.

When quite a few dozen teachers have been awarded a variety of citations, Huff is the only a single to obtain a national award for distinguished teaching.

“The NSTA Teacher Awards are a single of the highest honors any educator can obtain,” mentioned NSTA President Elizabeth Mulkerin. “Every single of them is a part model to their colleagues and an inspiration to their students.”

In 2008, Huff received a $ten,000 grant from Toyota’s Tapestry Plan for a hands-on, detailed science project, and in 2006, he earned a $ten,000 Presidential Award for Excellence in Teaching Math and Science.

He also won a statewide award for teaching excellence and was the Air Force Association’s New York Science Teacher of the Year, and was elected to the Council of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Huff has been teaching for 30 years, in his 24th year at Mill Middle in the Williamsville Central College District.
