The Model Icon Fashion Show took place a month ago at the historic Palmer House Hilton in downtown Chicago. During the show. I was awarded the Educator of the Year Award. This is a tremendous honor for me and it is truly gratifying that my efforts to educate the youth about neurobiology and art are recognized.
Interest in education is not limited to Chicago — this award cought the attention of fashion critics in Lithuania. A very nice write-up appeared in Lithuanian National Radio and Televison (LRT). The Lithuanian language text can be read here and the English translation here. This article was reprinted in the Chicago newspaper Draugas (Friend). The Lithuanian text is here and the English translation here.
