Letter to the Editor

Hall of Achievement nominations sought

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

The community of Spirit Lake has always been an avid supporter of our schools and proud of the quality of education it has provided for our students.

Many of us began our educational journey here and it provided a solid basis for continued education and training in the vocations we pursued. Some of us have watched our children as they benefited from the education received in the Spirit Lake Community Schools. Parents with children in school today will see that same quality as their children grow into adulthood. Still, others may just be friends of education and wish to honor a quality educator that they have known as a part of the school.

Many of us look back and fondly remember a teacher, an administrator, a coach, a janitor, a special volunteer, or other educator who touched our lives and made a difference in our learning process. If that educator was a part of the Spirit Lake Schools, this is your opportunity to acknowledge that educator who made a difference by nominating him or her for the Spirit Lake Education Hall of Achievement.

The Spirit Lake Education Hall of Achievement is seeking nominations for those special educators who influenced your life. Full information about the qualifications, selection criteria, nomination process, and selection process are available on the Spirit Lake Community School web site at http://www.spiritlake. k12.ia.us/sleha or by contacting Dr. Craig Newell at (712) 336-3428 (work) or email craig50@aol.com . Nominations are due by April 15.

Educationally yours,

Dr. Craig Newell
