The VFW Department of Michigan recognizes the crucial role educators play in the development of our Nation's youth. The VFW Teacher of the Year program is one way we can highlight extraordinary teachers who dedicate themselves to building up their students and teaching the importance of patriotism, service to others, and love for the American people.

The 2024 VFW Department of Michigan Teachers of the Year were recognized at our annual Mid-Winter Conference banquet in January. Congratulations and thank you for all you do for our young men and women!
