Parent Brenda Gonzales Jones had this to say about Stewart Savage, a Teacher of the Year nominee from Carnegie Vanguard High School:

“What Mr. Savage has accomplished with my daughter (a senior) and my son (a freshman) in helping to prepare them to face the real world is invaluable. As a parent, we know how important it is to ready our children for adulthood. Mr. Savage provides his students with problem solving, planning and presentation skills that will carry them more easily through whatever professional endeavors they may choose in life. I am forever grateful for his creativity and dedication to his students.”
