2024 Peterson-Schabach Outstanding Leadership Award

Congratulations to Tracy Detloff on being awarded the Peterson-Schabach Outstanding Leadership Award at the Education MN Representative Convention on Friday, April 19, 2024. This award is given annually to an Education MN leader who has made outstanding contributions to their local and the state organization. Recipients of this award must demonstrate Education Minnesota's Statements of Principle; commitment to members, the profession, the learners; commitment to public education and the community; commitment to the organization; commitment to the Labor Movement; and a commitment to racial equity and social justice. 

Tracy was nominated by Tammy Knapper, a teacher in the Willmar school district who also serves on the Education MN Governing Board. Tammy said, "The award is given to an extraordinary leader in Education MN. Tracy exemplifies what a great leader is. Tracy's commitment to Education MN's statements of principles is why she was nominated and received this award. Overall, Tracy earned this award for the everyday things she does to promote the union."

Tracy's New London-Spicer colleagues wholeheartedly agree, "We are so fortunate to have Tracy representing New London-Spicer at our local and state level," Deb Boonstra continued, "She even shared the national stage when she was selected as part of the group to welcome and introduce First Lady Dr. Jill Biden at the Representative Convention."
