The Power to Make a Difference
Marty Mitchell, Clinton Technical School welding instructor, was selected to receive Osage Valley Electric Cooperative’s Influential Educator Award. In addition to the award, he received a $250 gift card.
Mr. Mitchell was nominated by Appleton City High School student, Madison Wilson. Madison was selected as one of four finalists in the Osage Valley Youth Tour Essay Contest and will attend the Cooperative Youth Conference and Leadership Experience (CYCLE) in July. Each finalist was asked to name the educator with the most impact on their educational journey.
The Osage Valley Youth Tour Essay Contest program consists of an essay and interview. The contest not only provides four finalists with a trip to Washington DC or Jefferson City but also strives to build character, confidence, and compassion through the experiences and speakers on the trip. These students are the leaders of tomorrow and Osage Valley wants to acknowledge the educators that encouraged them along the way.
