District 191 employees recognized for excellence
Ten Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 staff members and an entire department are being recognized for their extraordinary contributions to the One91 community with 2022 Community of Excellence (COE) Awards.
“During a time when One91 staff members have been called on to do more than ever before and through unprecedented circumstances, they have risen and made a way forward for the benefit of our entire community,” said Superintendent Dr. Theresa Battle. “While there are many who deserve recognition for their dedication and professionalism, these staff members and programs stand out in reflecting our mission of Each Student. Future Ready. Community Strong.’”
Students, parents, community members and colleagues were invited to nominate employees in seven categories. A selection committee that included past recipients reviewed nominations and made selections. The award ceremony to honor COE recipients will begin at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 12, in the Mraz Center at Burnsville High School.
