Past Winners

2018 Winner: Adam Rushmeyer - Melrose Area High School

MCEE is proud to present Adam Rushmeyer with the 2018 Economic Educator of the Year Award. 

Adam lives in Albany and teaches 12th grade American Government and Economics at Melrose High School. Adam took advantage of MCEE professional development opportunities to prepare to teach economics and has now been doing so for 15 years.  Adam enjoys the teaching of economics because, as he states, “of all the social studies classes I teach, economics seems to offer the most opportunities for critical thinking and real world application.” In addition to entering projects into MCEE’s Global Food Challenge contest, his students also participate in the annual Economics Challenge competition at St Cloud State University.

MCEE congratulates Adam on his achievements in economic education and celebrates the talented teaching he brings to his students.
