TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A Topeka high school art teacher has won a prestigious teaching award.

Washburn Rural High School fine arts teacher Brad LeDuc was named a recipient of the Milken Educator Award for Kansas. The Kansas State Department of Education said in a news release that LeDuc was told about the award Thursday in a surprise ceremony at the school.

The Milken award also comes with a $25,000 prize. LeDuc has been an educator for about 12 years.

Gov. Sam Brownback and state education commissioner Diane DeBacker were among those attending the ceremony Thursday at the high school.
