Abby J. Burke, Ed. D--MRC President
Metropolitan Reading Council held its Literacy Educators Leadership Awards Event on April 20 at the Nebraska Brewing Company. We were honored to have Nebraska Senator Rick Kolowski as our keynote speaker. Sen. Kolowski is a member of Nebraska’s Legislative Education Committee. He provided an update on the happenings related to education at the
state level. In his closing, he reminded us as educators and as experts in the field of education of the importance of ‘sharing our stories’ with stakeholders. MRC members and members of the community had opportunities to network. In addition, there was a silent auction. The funds earned from this will support future endeavors supported by the Metropolitan Reading Council. MRC President, Dr. Abby Burke, announced the 2016-2107 Literacy Educators Leadership Awards at this event.
