MISSOULA - Hellgate High School's Carla Hinman was recently tapped as for Missoula's Exceptional High School Educator Award.

Representatives from the Missoula Education Foundation presented the award to the English teacher.

Hinman has worked at the school for 17 years and served as the English department chair for 14 years.

The MEF Student Board, comprised of high school students from across the District, nominated Hinman for the honor.

The student nominations included comments about her strong advocacy for students and her support for courses and programs that assist struggling readers.

Hinman has also accompanied students on trips to Costa Rica and Mexico to give students the opportunity to study other cultures.

“Carla’s passion for her school, her curriculum, and especially her students is unsurpassed," one nomination noted.
