USD 490 recognizes 2018 Friends of Education
Each year the Kansas Confidence in Education Task Force works with school districts to recognize community partners that make a positive impact on public education.

This year, USD 490 is honored to award Tim Connell, Susan B. Allen Memorial Hospital, and the El Dorado YMCA with Friends of Education Awards.

Their diligent support of student and staff wellness through the creation and sustaining of the e-Wow partnership has resulted in the creation of a middle school after-school wellness program and staff wellness teams at every school.

Their efforts and commitment to wellness have made a positive impact on our schools by both teaching staff and students how to make healthy life choices and providing an opportunity to put what they lean into practice.
