Jostens announced in May that La Quinta Middle School Teacher Dr. Farah Ortega-Choate would be inducted into the Jostens Renaissance® Hall of Fame.

Dr. Ortega-Choate and other Jostens Renaissance award winners were honored at the 30th annual Jostens Renaissance Global Conference in Dallas, Texas from July 13-15, 2023.

The Jostens Renaissance Hall of Fame honor is presented to educators who demonstrate exceptional leadership by improving the school’s climate and culture, which is tied to improvements in academic achievement among all students at their respective schools. They have also made a significant impact in supporting the Jostens Renaissance Education program at the state, national, and international level.

"This award is designed to recognize the passion and dedication of educators who are a driving force in impacting students’ academic performance and character. Farah has certainly demonstrated that at La Quinta Middle School and previous schools over the past 21 years. We will be honored to celebrate her accomplishments at the Jostens Renaissance Global Conference."
