Jennifer Schultz, business teacher at Ben Davis High School, has been named the Secondary Business Teacher of the Year by the North Central Business Education Association (NCBEA). The organization’s award winners were announced at a ceremony during the NCBEA Summer Summit in Lacrosse, Wisconsin in July.

The Secondary Business Teacher of the Year Award is presented to an educator who is primarily engaged in teaching business at the secondary school level. The criteria is focused on “outstanding contributions to business education through teaching, participation in local, state, national and national professional organizations, involvement in committees, and contributions through scholarship,” according to the NCBEA.

Ms. Schultz holds a degree in business education from Indiana State University. At Ben Davis High School, she teaches courses that include accounting, computer applications, business math and personal finance. In addition, she is an active Business Professionals of America advisor.

As one of her letters of support noted, “Jen puts her heart and soul into teaching with a passion and enthusiasm that is hard to be matched. In the crazy year that we have had, Jen continues to be a bright, shining star.”
