11-16-13 friend of education award
A local master gardener is the recipient of this year’s Fond du lac school district Friend of Education award. Fond du Lac School superintendent Dr. Jim Sebert says Bill Behnke is being recognized for his ongoing commitment to students and school gardens. "He has worked with the district starting with Riverside Elementary. There's a really nice garden and he has worked with the students and the staff to put that garden together," Sebert said. "There's a curriculum entitled Got Dirt that they work through with the kids so they understand the process of gardening and the environmental benefits." Behnke was presented with the award at this week's school board meeting.
