High School Teacher Wins High Honors

Laguna Beach High School teacher Mindy Hawkins was presented the 2017 Linda Kearns Community Service Award by the Orange County Substance Abuse Prevention Network at its annual conference in Anaheim earlier this month.

The award honors those who work with youth on strategies to prevent risky behavior.

Hawkins teaches the LBHS peer leadership class. “I really feel that this award should go to my students who have stepped out of their comfort zones and created campaigns, videos, and activities to support positive choices on our campus,” Hawkins said in a statement.
