Recipients of the 2017 Unsung Heroes of MSTA Award were chosen by the MSTA field service coordinators and were celebrated at the annual Convention. The award recognizes those who have made a substantive, yet unrecognized, contribution to MSTA and our mission to advocate for and empower public educators so they can teach. These people are admired for their courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. We will share profiles of the honorees each Monday, Wednesday and Friday in January and February.
