A Menominee Indian High School arts teacher was recognized this month by the National Education Association for helping to promote traditional crafts and culture to his students.

Ben Grignon, 42, a member of the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin, accepted the National Human and Civil Rights Award via a virtual ceremony because of the ongoing pandemic.

Grignon is currently pursuing his doctorate in First Nations Studies at UW-Green Bay and plans to further incorporate mathematics and science into his art teachings.
