An Albion native was one of eight educators honored by Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Dec. 6 with the Shine Award, given for making significant contributions to education.

Demetrius Revelas, a member of Albion’s Class of 1979, is principal at Murdock Middle School in Charlotte County in the Fort Myers area of Southwest Florida.

In the past two years, over 700 Microsoft certifications have been earned by students at the school. Revelas also is the recipient of the National After School Association “My Principal Matters” Award, according to a news release from the Gov. Scott.

Revelas is also a graduate of Brockport State College in 1983. He is the son of Gus and Barbara Revelas.

“As a veteran educator I want to share my experiences with others,” Revelas said in a phone interview today. “As an educator I am always here to grow.”

In Florida, the school districts are organized by counties. Revelas works in a district with about 16,000 students.

He tries to bring small-town values he learned at Albion and Brockport to his career, making relationships and personal connections a priority.

“The Shine Award is presented to outstanding teachers like these who go above and beyond in the classroom to educate Florida’s future leaders,” Gov. Rick Scott said on Tuesday when the awards were presented. “I applaud these educators for continuing their professional development with this demanding program and preparing students for Florida’s workforce.”
