Sunrise Middle’s social studies teacher, Jaeve Luuhoang, was one of ten teachers awarded a Follow Your Bliss award from the 49ers Foundation.
Ms. Luuhoang was honored for her work on social justice and environmental issues with our youth.
Here she is shown with Harry Edwards, the namesake of the award. Mr. Edwards, 88, organized the two black Olympians that resulted in medals with black power fists, now shown on the stadium podium. He is an emeritus professor of sociology at UC Berkeley and leads the diversity program for the 49ers.
Also pictured here is Sunrise paraprofessional Jordan Monderen and the student body vice president, Alex Jose Garcia.
