In September, 2018, BCA history teacher, Sergei Alschen, was selected as a University of Chicago Outstanding Educator Award winner.   The nomination came from Moritz Reichert, a student in Sergei's IB History of the Americas class last year.  Sergei is “greatly honored to have been nominated by such an outstanding student and wonderful young man as Moritz; and wishes Moritz all the best at the University of Chicago and in his life.”
