Public invited to farewell reception honoring outgoing School Board Chair Tom Heidemann

Tom Heidemann (12/06/19) The public is invited to a farewell reception honoring outgoing School Board chair Tom Heidemann on Monday, Dec. 9.

The event will take place before the School Board’s regular meeting, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Sandburg Education Center, located at 1902 Second Ave. in Anoka.

The Dec. 9 Anoka-Hennepin School Board meeting will be Heidemann’s last after serving two decades as an Anoka-Hennepin School Board member. Erin Heers-McArdle was elected to serve District 1 on the board in the November election. She begins in January.

“We welcome any community member that wants to come and celebrate 20 years of service to the community by Chair Heidemann at our next board meeting,” said Anoka-Hennepin Superintendent David Law.

Some of Heidemann’s recent accomplishments include helping lead the school district through the successful implementation of a large-scale, districtwide facility improvement plan that was made possible by passage of the 2017 Fit for the Future referendum, and leading the implementation of a cutting-edge, data-driven continuous improvement model, which has caught the eye of school districts across the nation.
