Out of 140 high schools and hundreds of teachers, it was Greenville Junior Senior High School teacher Travis Rubke who was named Educator of the Year for Region 2.

He was awarded the distinguished title Wednesday, Jan. 5, in Redding, where several local faculty, staff and directors were present.

His award was greeted with loud and proud cheers from the Greenville contingent, according to fellow teacher Laurie Wann.

Principal Jim Lake introduced Rubke to the audience with sincere appreciation for his devotion to the school and community.

Music teacher Jim Norman, a past recipient, was the one who nominated Rubke, with a thoughtful and entertaining letter.

Norman's letter described Rubke's educational excellence and service to students and co-workers alike; his being an inspiration to teachers and administrators alike.

Seemingly tireless in his efforts, this hardworking man has been a respected and trusted teacher, coach and class advisor for decades, Norman wrote.

Rubke can be found working at the school all hours of the day and night, volunteering his time to host study halls on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, coordinating the countywide science fair, and encouraging students to always do their best and be successful in all they do.

Staff members and students gathered the next day at school for a surprise reception in the gym to congratulate Rubke on a job well done, and to show their appreciation of his efforts.

Rubke will be attending another event in Sacramento next month, along with 11 other finalists, where the Educator of the Year for the whole state of California will be announced.
