Barnes staff and parents receive "People's Choice" Awards

Five members of the Barnes community were honored last night by the Burlington Education Association at their annual "People's Choice Awards." Paraeducator Tamara Musgrove won an award for "Outstanding Advocate" for her leadership in bringing livable wages to school staff, Reading Coach Mary Weith won an "Outstanding Colleague" award, and "Outstanding Community Member for Education" awards were given to Barnes parents Vince Brennan (also Ward 3 school commissioner), Sara Osaba (also Barnes Parent Involvement Coordinator) and Heather Riemer (PTO co-president).

I'm on the speak out committee for MLK day run by Burlington's own CEDO VISTAS, would you have Sarah's contact info? We'd like to see if she could give us any input.
