Anoka-Hennepin School District officials, past and present, honored the leader of the School Board this week.
On Monday evening, Tom Heidemann was presented with a special plaque and medal for his 20 years of service on the Anoka-Hennepin School Board. It was his final meeting as board chair. Colleagues thanked him for his years of support, vision and leadership. Then Heidemann took the microphone to make a few comments.
Heidemann spent many years volunteering before being elected to the School Board back in 1999. Last month, Erin Heers-McArdle beat Heidemann for the District One seat on the school board. She will be sworn in next month.
