Honoring high school educators for outstanding service
Rotary's Outstanding Educator for 2023 is Mr. Carl "C.J." Green. He teaches Career &Technical Education business and marketing courses at Lake Washington High School, and is the school's Black Student Union advisor. He co-leads the LWHS Racial Equity Team and is a strong advocate for, and coach of, the DECA student leadership program. Mr. Green also coaches football. 
Principal Christine Bell says that, "Aside from his leadership in these areas, what stands out about Mr. Green is his thoughtful and reflective nature. He listens carefully, particularly to students, and is a leader on our staff. You might find him supervising concessions so that his clubs can earn funds for trips, managing our student store, or teaching students how to plan for and run their own businesses."
She notes, "As a leader in our community, Mr. Green and his Black Student Union visited Audubon Elementary in February. They led an assembly and asked students to consider what power students have to create a more just and equitable future. They created positive connections with Kirkland youth that will benefit our future student leaders."
The Rotary Club of Kirkland is pleased to present C.J. Green its Outstanding Educator Award for 2023.
