KIPP Columbus High School Teacher and Milken Education Award Recipient

Nathan Yaussy is an alumnus of OJSHS, competing from 2002 to 2004. His project, “Road Mortality of Snakes in the Killdeer Plains Wildlife Area”, won him trips to Portland, Colorado Springs, San Diego, China, and even Cleveland. Other past research projects include: counting aquatic insects, pulling invasive plants, planting native dune grass on the shores of Lake Superior, and tracking endangered iguanas in the Caribbean.

He earned his bachelor’s degree in biology from Hiram College, and obtained a master’s degree from Kent State University. After realizing he wanted to be a teacher, he earned a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship to attend John Carroll University for his Master of Education degree.

Nathan is now in his first year of teaching at KIPP Columbus High School. (Knowledge is Power Program). Prior to this he taught seven years at Fairport Harding High School, where he taught a variety of science courses, from 7th grade science to human anatomy, and quite a few things in between.

In November of 2019, he was awarded the Milken Education Award, which is only given to forty teachers throughout the nation each school year.
