Larry Anders Named Missouri Marketing Teacher of the Year

FHHS marketing teacher and DECA advisor Larry Anders has been named the 2018 Marketing Educator of the Year by the Missouri Marketing & Cooperative Education Association (MCEA). The honor recognizes his significant contributions to quality programming that has resulted in high student achievement in marketing and cooperative education.

Anders has dedicated three decades to teaching and mentoring at FHHS, and he says he is honored by the recognition. “This award means a lot to me because there are so many great marketing teachers in Missouri. To be recognized by the state as a teacher that exemplifies excellence in what we teach is awesome.”

Both marketing classes and DECA provide students with real-world learning opportunities that Anders says paves the way for success. “The marketing curriculum lets the students take what they learn in the classroom and allows them to put it in practical application in a work setting, career goals and personal development.”
