SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (Sept. 20, 2021) – Scott Spohler, a science teacher at Global Impact
STEM Academy, received the 2021 Kishor M. Kulkarni Distinguished High School Teacher
Award Friday morning. This award was presented by Dr. Glenn Daehn, president of the ASM
Materials Education Foundation. ASM International is a society of professionals for the
advancement of the materials industry.

The Kishor Kulkarni Distinguished High School Teacher Award was established in 2007 to
recognize the accomplishments of one high school science teacher across the country who has
demonstrated a significant and sustained impact on pre-college age students. Every year since
its inception, with the exception of 2020, one outstanding teacher has been recognized with this
award.

“As a STEM-based school, it is imperative that we provide our students with the most effective
science education and the most impactful educators,” said Jamison Truebenbach, Global
Impact chief academic officer. “Mr. Spohler exemplifies the positive qualities we aim to
recognize in all of the educators at Global Impact, and we’re proud of his great
accomplishment.”

Known for his hands-on approach to science education, Spohler has been teaching a variety of
scientific disciplines for 30 years, including chemistry, physical and material sciences, and
physics.

“Working with ASM has transformed my teaching style and approach to education,” said
Spohler. “It has shown me that hands-on learning, and a little chaos, is usually a great
combination for students to learn.”
