Woodbeck receives Minot Education Association Friend of Education Award

MINOT, N.D. – Amy Woodbeck, Minot State professional and community education coordinator, was awarded the Minot Education Association (MEA) Friend of Education Award on Monday.

The award is given to an individual or institution who works diligently to improve education in Minot Public Schools, and the MEA cited Woodbeck’s work with professional learning, which helps teachers and administrators continue their education advancement.

Woodbeck was nominated by Melissa Stanley, previous Minot Public Schools professional learning coordinator.

“Melissa nominated me for the work we did together to build the Professional Development Learning Menu that allows educators to earn credits during the year,” said Woodbeck. “In the last six years, educators have been able to earn over 1,000 credits due to the work we have done.”

Woodbeck graduated from Minot State in 2006 with her Bachelor of Applied Studies with a major in applied business information technology. She has been employed at the University since 2003, and with professional and community education since 2006.

The MEA represents teachers and education support professionals employed by Minot Public Schools. The Friend of Education Award was presented by MEA representative Stacy Coon at the Minot Public Schools Welcome Back Assembly.
