Lina Al Samawi Has Been Selected for the University of Chicago’s Outstanding Educator Awards!

Students accepted into the University of Chicago Class of 2025 were asked to nominate an educator whose guidance has helped them along the path toward intellectual growth. Lina Al Samawi was selected from thousands of student submissions in recognition of high school educators who have positively impacted student lives. Outstanding educators go beyond everyday teaching and leave an impression that is carried over a lifetime.

At Deerfield, Lina teaches Arabic, is an International Student Advisor, and is part of our Center for Service and Global Citizenship.


Please join us for a virtual event celebrating this year’s winners on Monday, October 25 at 7 pm CDT.

The presentation will be conducted using Zoom, an online webinar and video chat platform.
