Posted in Rushford Education

Rebecca Munson was honored with a certificate of appreciation for her 2 years as a student representative for the Rushford-Peterson Schools School Board. (From left to right, High School Principal Shane McBroom, Rebecca Munson, and Superintendent Chuck Ehler.

Rushford-Peterson Schools would like to recognize the time and efforts that Senior Rebecca Munson has contributed to the board of education over the last 2 years. At the end of the 2010-2011 school year, the R-P Board of Education and Administrators requested letters of interest from the student body for a student representative for the school board.

Rebecca Munson was chosen to be the student representative, a position that had been vacant for a number of years. Rebecca brought passion and support for the district through monthly opportunities to update the board on school happenings. Rebecca became very educated on the overall picture of the operations of a school district. Her efforts and commitments to Rushford-Peterson Schools will be missed but we wish her the very best in her pursuit to become a future educator.
