Physical Education instructor Lori Henry was celebrated as a “Symetra Hero in the Classroom” on Nov. 2, 2012 during an assembly at Kellogg Middle School—and recognized at CenturyLink Field on Nov. 11, 2012, when the Seahawks played the New York Jets.

“Lori Henry has been a teacher at Kellogg Middle School for over 15 years — remaining in the community in which she grew up to serve its kids and families — and she is a star in every sense. As a P.E. teacher, Ms. Henry inspires and motivates her students to do their best by teaching them how to face their fears, set goals and reach new heights,” said Lisa Scott, principal at Kellogg Middle School. “In Ms. Henry’s class, kids know they will have fun and be treated with respect, and that she expects them to be model citizens.”

Scott was one of several individuals, including a colleague and former Symetra Heroes in the Classroom recipient, parent and several students, who nominated Henry for the Symetra Heroes in the Classroom® award.

“We know that our students do better in school when they are engaged in meaningful activities after school and when they have positive adult role models in their life. Ms. Henry makes sure they have both, and our middle school is a vibrant community as a result.”
