Teacher/Mentor Honored

(Michigan City, IN) - The Michigan City Chamber of Commerce is recognizing a local educator. Renee Hall was chosen for this year’s Michigan City Education Award.  Hall is the Guidance Counselor at Lake Hills Elementary School.


The annual award is for an educator or program that has made a significant impact on the community over the past year.


“Ms. Hall has been a part of Michigan City area schools for more than twenty years and has done so much for not only our school but also the community. In addition, she also runs amazing career fairs each year and does her best to get local businesses to participate to not only benefit our students' learning experience, but to help those local businesses flourish and get more recognition," said the Michigan City Chamber of Commerce President Katie Eaton.


Hall also volunteers her time after school with Girls on the Run, giving her time and energy to mentor young girls at the school. 


"She leads with grace and strength and always helps staff when it is needed,” Eaton said.


The nomination period for the 2023 Michigan City Education Award will open in September.  For more information or to submit a nomination in the future, visit www.MichiganCityChamber.com or call 219-874-6221.
