Congratulations to Valerie Kunze, Char Hart, and Annie France. All three were recognized at the Support Staff of Excellence banquet. It was my privilege to accompany our honorees to St. Cloud for an excellent supper, awards, and speakers. Val, Annie, and Char were selected as outstanding support staff to represent our district among 112 educators selected across central Minnesota. Our staff was selected because of the great relationships they build with students. They work hard to get to the know each and every student while pushing them to achieve their potential. We are lucky to have these three educators in our community.
