In the article last weekabout Terry Tryggeseth,man-ager of Trig’s in Eagle River,receiving the Wisconsin Gro-cers Association Inc.(WGA)Community Service Award,itwas noted he also was namedthe 2003 Eagle River Man of the Year.That award was pre-sented by the Eagle River Area Chamber of Commerce& Visitors Center.
Correction
State Superintendent TonyEvers has announced thenames of 116 schools receivingrecognition for their success ineducating students from low-income families,including thePhelps Elementary School.Receiving the Schools of Recognition award is nothingnew for the Phelps School Dis-trict,according to District Administrator Delnice Hill.“This has been a specialhonor we have earned formany years,including 2003-2009 at either the elementaryor high school level,said Hill.“Receiving this recognitionagain,for the eighth time,is just as exciting as the firsttime.”Schools meeting all four cri-teria for the recognition willreceive a plaque at an Oct.12awards ceremony at the StateCapitol and $5,000 for use bythe school.This year’s 116 WisconsinSchool of Recognition Awardrecipients include 80 elemen-tary schools,20 middle or junior high schools and 16high schools.Even though Phelps quali-fies for the honor due to thenumber of low-income fami-lies,Hill said the PhelpsSchool will continue to providea quality education.“With or without honorssuch as these,our teachersdiligently work day after dayto provide the best academicinstruction possible,saidHill.“We know it takes a part-nership with our school fami-lies to achieve this status,andwe are thankful for their con-tinued collaboration with ourschool.”
 Award criteria
The 2011-’12 WisconsinSchool of Recognition awardsgo to schools that have some of the highest poverty rates inthe state,based on free andreduced-price school lunchdata.In addition,studentachievement on the 2010-’11state reading and mathemat-ics examinations was aboveaverage for schools from simi-larly sized districts,schools,grade configurations andpoverty levels.Each schoolalso met adequate yearlyprogress for the past twoyears. Additionally,the schoolseither are Title I eligible orreceive Title I funding to pro- vide services to high numbersor high percentages of eco-nomically disadvantaged chil-dren.Evers agreed with Hill inthat schools and communitiesmust work together to providea quality education.“In these schools,teachers,parents,administrators,otherschool staff members and thecommunity work together tocreate an educational environ-ment that supports children’slearning,”Evers said.“Thisaward recognizes their effortsand sets a tone for the 2011-’12 school year.”During the awards ceremo-ny,10 of the 116 schools willreceive flags for earning theWisconsin School of Recogni-tion award for five consecutiveyears.Another 14 schools havereceived the award for morethan five years and three forall nine years of the program.“Our schools continuallystrive to overcome the linkbetween poverty and educa-tional challenge.They estab-lish rigorous programs of aca-demic instruction that sup-port individual studentneeds,”Evers said.“The staff and administration of the2011-’12 Wisconsin Schools of Recognition are to be com-mended.”
