Board Names Friends of Education Winners

The Topeka Public Schools Board of Education recognized one group and one individual as 2012 Friends of Education winners at their March 1 meeting. The Jardine Middle School Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) coordinators were recognized as winners in the community/civic organization category. McEachron Elementary volunteer, June Rule, was recognized in the school volunteer category.

The Kansas Confidence in Public Education Task Force sponsors the award program each year. TPS selects local winners and then submits them as nominations to the Task Force for statewide recognition.
