2022 Horizon Award Winners

The Spring Hill School District is excited to honor its 2022 Horizon Award winners. This recognition is given to teachers for exemplary performance during their first year in the classroom. The elementary school honoree is Alyson Daniels, teacher at Spring Hill Early Learning Academy. The secondary honoree is Meredith Helus, Social Studies teacher at Spring Hill Middle School. Both educators joined the district for the 2020-21 school year, and are now in their second year of teaching.


As district-level winners, they have the opportunity to compete in the Kansas State Department of Education’s 2022 Kansas Horizon Award Program. Daniels and Helus will represent USD 230 at a special ceremony during the 2022 Kansas Exemplary Educators Network (KEEN) Conference in Topeka next February.


"Alyson and Meredith are excellent examples of the high quality of teachers in our district," said Ms. Michelle Hackney, Director of Human Resources. "We are very proud of these two outstanding educators and are fortunate they have chosen USD 230 as their teaching home."
