PROVIDENCE, RI - Governor Gina M. Raimondo yesterday met with Rhode
Island's 2017 Teacher of the Year, Nikos Giannopoulos, at the State House. Last
week, Nikos made headlines by standing up for our state's values on the
national stage. From his students and colleagues at Beacon Charter High School
for the Arts in Woonsocket, to the State of Rhode Island, and finally, to the
White House--the entire nation now knows the dedicated, inspiring person that
he is. On behalf of the State of Rhode Island, Governor Raimondo thanks Nikos
for his dedication to promoting inclusion and acceptance.
