Each year, AMSD presents its Friend of Public Education Award to one or more state policymakers who demonstrate exceptional leadership, advocacy and support of public education and issues important to AMSD member school districts. In November AMSD is recognized State Sen. Sandy Pappas, DFL-District 65; State Sen. Julie Rosen, R-District 23; and Rep. Tim O’Driscoll, R-13B.
AMSD presented the awards to State Sen. Sandy Pappas, DFL-District 65 and State Sen. Julie Rosen, R-District 23 at its board of directors meeting on Friday, Nov. 2.
