Educator honored for promoting patriotism

Posted:
JACKSON JUNCTION (KWWL) -

One Turkey Valley teacher can now say she is Iowa's first American Legion of Iowa Educator of the Year.

Evie Milbrandt, teacher/librarian at Turkey Valley Community Schools, received the award Tuesday during an all school assembly.

The American Legion of Iowa named Milbrandt Educator of the Year for efforts in promoting patriotism.

She credits the Turkey Valley community for her award.

"One of our students just recently said that one percent of the people in the United States serves in the military and wow, one percent guards the rest of us and we just need to realize that that one percent is giving an awesome amount."

This award means even more to Milbrandt as her father is a veteran.
