A Kewaskum Middle School teacher has been honored with a state wide award from the Wisconsin Education Association Council. Kim Longdin has been teaching at Kewaskum Middle School for sixteen years and is currently president of her local education association. Longdin has been selected as the recipient of the Tenia Jenkins Activist Award for her activism for students and educators. WEAC President Betsy Kippers commented on Longdin’s award by saying “Kim’s work in the classroom, in the Kewaskum School District and in the Kewaskum community has brought her to a special place in the hearts and minds of her students, colleagues, parents and citizens. What makes the award even more special is that Longdin was nominated for the statewide award by her colleagues. Kewaskum Middle School Principal Julie Skelton supported the recommendation by saying, “The community of Kewaskum recognizes Kimberly as a leader and an advocate for education.” Longdin, accepted the 2014 Tenia Jenkins Activist Award from WEAC President Betsy Kippers recently in West Bend. Longdin will also be honored at a statewide meeting later this month.
