Hansens receive District 206 ACE Award

Joyce and Jerry Hansen are the 2013 recipients of the School District 206 A Champion in Education (ACE) Award.

Its purpose is to annually recognize individuals in District 206 who support public education through advocacy, partnerships, service or donation of resources. Contributions may occur in a single year or over a span of several years.

Champions are selected for their deeds and accomplishments that have had a significant, positive impact on the students of Alexandria Public Schools.

Honorees receive an individual engraved award, and their names are displayed on a wall plaque at the District Welcome Center.

The Hansens received their award at the annual Hall of Fame Luncheon sponsored by the Alexandria Public Schools Education Foundation.

Alexandria Board of Education chair Dean Anderson noted that “over the years, Joyce and Jerry have served as outstanding role models for young people. They give of their time and talents with great passion and humility.”
