WJER-Indian Valley FFA Toy Drive
Honorees were selected for their efforts to get to know the superintendent, board president, and district mission and goals; report school news in a fair, accurate and balanced manner; give a high profile to positive news about schools; visit the schools; and maintain a policy of “no surprises” by sharing information with school officials.
In addition to her personalized certificate, Shyanne will also be recognized in the OSBA's Journal magazine and on its website.
