RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- A teacher at Galena High School is happy to be on her home turf, and this month she is News 4's Excellence in Education Award winner!

Freshman English teacher Lucy Dugan was more than a little surprised as she was teaching Shakespeare and evening anchor Shelby Sheehan walked into the auditorium with the award in hand.

Dugan has been teaching for five years at Galena. She works with freshman students who are needing extra support and those who are accelerated.

Her colleagues say her passion for English is contagious, and her students grow tremendously under her watch.

Not too long ago, Dugan was a student herself at Galena, and she remembers the impact her teachers had on her. She said she wanted to be able to do the same.

Congratulations to Lucy Dugan, News 4's Class Act Award Winner!
