SINGER FAMILY PRIZES Award-Winning Teachers

PRIZED PUPILS: Each year, undergraduates are invited to honor teachers who have had a profound impact on their lives as students and as individuals before they arrived at Rochester. Graduating seniors are asked to nominate high school teachers to receive the University’s Singer Family Prize for Excellence in Secondary School Teaching. The awards are presented at a special ceremony during commencement weekend. “The Paul Singer Family Foundation feels strongly that while devoted secondary school teachers play a vital role in the intellectual development of American society, they often receive little recognition or acclaim for their endeavors,” says Gordon Singer, the son of Paul Singer ’66, who initiated the prize.
