By Amy Jeanroy


Former Calais High School Science teacher, David Winski, has been nominated for the LifeChanger Spirit Award. 

The Award recognizes positive leadership and influence that the nominee brings to their community.

The winners are based on numerous criteria including a proven ability to make a beneficial difference in the lives of students and being a leader in his or her activities at the school and district level. 

A deciding factor for the national committee choice of winners is the above criteria as well as the community which shows the most spirit for their LifeChanger and rallies behind the recognition they community gives their nominee. 

Winski teaches at Edmunds Consolidated School and was nominated by the school's principal, Trudy Newcomb, saying  Winski is "exceptional," explaining "He is literally changing the lives of his students by opening up their thinking beyond the walls of their classrooms. Mr. Winski takes his students past the remoteness of their communities and gives their imaginations the fuel to makes their dreams reality."
