A huge congratulations is in order for Prep School photography teacher Andrew Stole, who was nominated by his students for CENTER’s Callanan Excellence in Teaching Award.

CENTER, a national nonprofit founded in 1994, supports social and environmental photography and film projects through education, funding and partnerships. As stated on their website, CENTER advances “projects that respect all people, open minds and engage our shared humanity.” Thus, the Callanan Excellence in Teaching Award honors an exemplary high school, college or postgraduate teacher’s dedication and commitment to their students, craft and creating a social impact through their medium. As part of the nomination, Mr. Stole’s work will be featured in CENTER’s direct mail catalog that reaches up to 15,000 photographers and others nationwide. 

In their letter to Mr. Stole, CENTER wrote that the “nomination alone speaks highly of your work as a dedicated and motivating educator.” Mr. Stole thanked his students for the nomination and for pushing him to become a better photographer, saying, “I am so thankful to teach such enthusiastic and inventive photography students. Every year they surprise me with their willingness to experiment with their approach to photography. Honestly, I learn so much from my students. I would like to thank them for the nomination. It really means a lot to me.”

Congratulations, Mr. Stole, on the exciting nomination!
