Anchorage, AK - Tonight is the final wrap on what’s been an incredible journey for Soldotna English teacher, James Harris.

Harris was recognized tonight on the 50 yard line of the college football championships – just one of the spectacular things he’s done in his year.

But for Harris, this journey hasn’t been about travels or adventures – it’s about advocating.

Education is constantly a debate state and nationwide - what the best practices are, what topics need to be covered, and who should teach it.

He also expressed that he truly believes Alaska’s education system is slowly but surely headed in the right direction.

Harris says this year has been such an affirmation that teaching is what he was meant to do, and he hopes to continue making an impact on students, long after the title is gone.
