NORTH CRAWFORD - A $6,000 Herb Kohl Educational Foundation 2018 Fellowship was presented to Rebecca Molledahl, an elementary school teacher at North Crawford School Distrist in Soldiers Grove at a recognition luncheon hosted by Herb Kohl, Wisconsin philanthropist and businessman. The school will receive a matching $6,000 grant.
Molledahl was originally nominated for the award by CESA-3, and was among the final 100 teachers selected for the award by a state review committee.
“I can’t think of a more worthy recipient of the Kohl Fellowship Award than Mrs. Molledahl,” Superintendent Brandon Munson said at a recent North Crawford School Board meeting. “She earned the award with the endless work that she does for our district.”
The Herb Kohl Fellowship recognizes teachers who have demonstrated superior ability to inspire love of learning in their students, have motivated others, and have provided meritorious service both inside and outside the classroom.
The Herb Kohl Educational Foundation has been recognizing educational excellence annually since 1990, awarding fellowships to 100 Wisconsin teachers and matching grants to each fellow's school.
Since it was established in 1990, the Herb Kohl Educational Foundation has awarded $14.5 million to Wisconsin students, teachers, principals and schools.
