Posted on 04/20/2020

Alderwood Middle School teacher Jack Seymour has been awarded the Washington Industrial Technology Education Association’s 2020 Program of the Year award.


The award recognizes outstanding science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programs statewide. He received it in March at the annual spring conference in Wenatchee.

Seymour oversees the school’s STEM program, and is completing his 39th year of teaching in the Edmonds School District.


Alderwood Middle School is known for its successful involvement in the Technology Student Association, which is the nation’s largest STEM student leadership organization. 


Seymour’s students have been successful at state and national competitions in a variety of STEM related events. He also played a key role in the design and integration of the STEM facility at Alderwood Middle School, which opened in 2017 and set the standard for new STEM facilities.


“The AMS TSA teams thrive with amazing help from the dedicated staff members at AMS, former students that return to help each year, and the Alderwood Terrace Rotary that helps serve our team” Seymour said. “Many thanks to everyone that has helped to make this award possible.”
