"One Room Heroes" is finished!

IT STARTED AS A SMALL REQUEST...And now it’s a book!!

Book arriving for our 2019 conference in Nebraska City!!!

The idea of "One Room Heroes" started the beginning of 2016 with Betty Stukenholtz requesting "nominations" for country school teacher honorees for a plaque unveiled at the Peru State conference in 2016. So many people responded it was overwhelming, then it blossomed into the idea of a book. Now that book is a reality!

The plaque that was dedicated at the conference in July 2016 has 250 names on it. People sent wonderful stories and photographs along with their nominations, and they continued to pour in. We are forever grateful to Betty for starting this project and we are proud to have finished it in her honor.
