A decision Travis Schuh made while a student at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire has made a difference for middle-schoolers in the eastern Wisconsin village of Wrightstown.

Schuh, a 2012 UW-Eau Claire English education graduate, has been honored as an outstanding educator in the greater Green Bay area for his work as a sixth-grade English language arts teacher at Wrightstown Middle School.

While he intended to become a police officer when he began his studies at UW-Eau Claire, a required university English class and a talk with a former high school teacher led Schuh to reconsider his course of study. Inspired to follow his love of reading and writing, Schuh decided to become an education major.

Read a Green Bay Press-Gazette story, including a Q and A with Schuh, about his recent award and his thoughts on his work as a teacher.
