“Education vs. Domestic Violence” event deemed a huge success
Representatives from Waterloo Community School District, Cedar Falls Community School District, Cedar Valley Catholic Schools, the University of Northern Iowa, Sylvan Learning Center, Kaplan University, AEA 267, and Upper Iowa University participated in a wing eating contest to raise money for the Cedar Valley Friends of the Family domestic violence shelter. AEA 267’s own Rod Ball put up a valiant effort eating 44 hot wings in eight minutes, bested only by Henry Shepherd of Waterloo Community School District. The event was a lot of fun for a great cause! Thanks to everyone who donated and supported the event.
Horn, Vincent present to Senate Education Committee
Dr. Horn and Dr. Paula Vincent (Heartland AEA Chief Administrator) presented to the Senate Education Committee the week of February 16 in Des Moines. Their mission was to help those in the legislature come to an even better understanding of the critical mission of Iowa’s AEAs in helping the state’s students, families, and school districts. By all accounts this was a highly successful presentation. Senators were particularly interested in the work that AEAs are doing with some recent focus issues such as dyslexia and autism, and seemed pleased with the response. Pictured with Horn and Vincent is Dr. Tom Lane, AEA 267 Legislative Liaison for Iowa’s AEAs.
