District Staff Recognized With LEEA Award

It was a big night for St. Cloud Area School District 742 at Resource Training & Solutions' annual Leadership in Educational Excellence Banquet and Award Ceremony (LEEA). This ceremony recognizes outstanding educational leaders from member school districts. Over 150 educators and administrators are honored each year. Each district is responsible for establishing its own selection procedures. St. Cloud Area School District Superintendent Laurie Putnam presented the awards.

"In every field there are those individuals who rise to the top; those who go above and beyond to master their craft," says Mark Schmitz, executive director of Resource Training & Solutions.
