Mr. Tony Gonczarow, a science teacher at Southmont High School, was honored with the Hoosier Upstander Award at the 23rd annual awards program at the Indiana Statehouse on Tuesday, Nov. 9.

The Hoosier Upstander Award is for an individual or organization that has shown a commitment to using the lessons of the Holocaust to inspire Hoosiers to stand up in the fight against hate and bigotry, and to actively promote respect and understanding.
