Brianna Ostoff, Director of Community Education in District 192, has been chosen as the State Community Educator of Excellence by the Minnesota Community Education Association (MCEA).  She received her award at the MCEA Virtual Winter Conference which took place via Zoom on Feb. 17 & 18, 2021.

MCEA recognizes, thanks and celebrates the outstanding contributions made by practitioners and supporters of community education from across Minnesota. Nominees represent the best of the best: persons committed to working together, creating opportunities, persisting through challenges and partnering with others.

Brianna took on a leadership role with the Community Ed. COVID-19 Task Force, which was created back in March of 2020, setting up twice-weekly state-wide virtual meetings, so Directors and others in the field could meet to ask questions, receive clarification and ideas, and get support, as everyone navigated the new and ever-changing guidelines for schools and Community Ed. as they related to COVID. Brianna did all of this in addition to her many duties as the Community Ed. Director in Farmington.

Brianna is highly respected by her colleagues and her co-workers. She has made a significant impact not only on her local community, but state-wide as well. Congratulations, Brianna!
