Each year, the World Affairs Council honors an outstanding educator who has inspired his or her students while fulfilling the mission of our Global Young Leaders program. The recipient of the 2018 International Educator of the Year Award is John Scott, an economics and American-studies educator at Plano West Senior High School. Under Mr. Scott’s leadership, the Plano West Junior World Affairs Council has won three national titles for the Academic WorldQuest competition. He has shown a consistent commitment to emphasizing international education and global perspectives throughout his teaching career.

This year’s IEY luncheon features a conversation with Mexico’s 55th President Vicente Fox (2000-2006) and Marta Sahagún de Fox. Since leaving office, the Foxes built Centro Fox, Mexico’s first presidential library and museum. Centro Fox’s academy and music school seeks to “form compassionate leaders for creating a better world” with its student programs.
