University City High School announced last August that social studies teacher Matthew Horn was named as a finalist for Missouri State Teacher of the Year. Horn was one of six finalists for the honor given by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). In addition to being a social studies teacher, Horn is also the assistant varsity football coach for the U. City Lions. He uses both positions to build relationships and make lasting connections with students.

Dr. Jeffrey Gordon, MD, researcher at Washington University School of Medicine, has been awarded the 2017 Louisa Gross Horwitz Prize by Columbia University. Gordon\u2019s work has demonstrated that the gut microbiome functions as a microbial organ within the larger human organism. He and his students are studying the gut microbial communities from malnourished children, and they have developed microbiota-directed therapeutic foods designed to repair microbiota immaturity. Gordon\u2019s work has led to a fundamental shift in understanding the roles of these microbes in human health and disease. The Louisa Gross Horwitz Prize is one of the top awards honoring contributions to the biological sciences.

Local photographer, Shana Watkins of Shana Watkins Photography, was honored with several awards, including Missouri Photographer of the Year 2017. A panel of 33 jurors from across the nation selected the top photographs from nearly 5,800 entries. She was honored at the Missouri Professional Photographers Conference last August. Watkins\u2019 work will be on display at the Gaylord Opryland Convention Center in Nashville, TN, January 14-16, 2018. Her photograph titled, \u201cI\u2019ll Never Leave Your Side,\u201d will be in the International Photographic Exhibition.

Jon Hamm with LN staff writer, Amanda Dahl.

Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning actor Jon Hamm came to support his hometown library, St. Louis County Library, with back-to-back fundraising events on July 22. He began the day with a sold-out speaking engagement at the library\u2019s Lindbergh headquarters, where the star of Mad Men talked with local novelist Curtis Sittenfeld. The author of Prep, soon to be a show on HBO, interviewed Hamm about growing up in St. Louis and storytelling through film and television.

Later that evening, Andy and Mary Ann Srenco hosted a private reception for Hamm inside their home, giving donors a unique opportunity to mingle with the celebrity. Among the guests was local hero Jon Brough. The retired Belleville police sergeant was shot in the face in the line of duty while attempting to protect his fellow officers from a suspect with a shotgun. Brough, a fan of Hamm, named the actor\u2019s performance in Bridesmaids as one of his favorites. Hamm thanked him for his service, stopping to talk and pose for a few photos with Brough and his wife, Wendy.

Funds raised from both events went to support the St. Louis County Library and St. Louis Public Library\u2019s new program, Career Online High School, which enables adult learners, age 25 and older, to earn their high school diploma, as well as a career certificate. Learn more at slcl.org.

Catch Hamm in the crime thriller Baby Driver, currently in theaters. Other film and television credits include 30 Rock, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Million Dollar Arm and The Town.
