History

  • The Westonka School District has implemented a special award to recognize some of the many dedicated volunteers who offer exceptional service to our school community. The district each year presents up to two or three awards, titled the Ann Bremer White Hawks Award, to recognize outstanding service and commitment to Westonka students and the district. The first awards were presented in 2015.

    The award is named in honor of Ann Bremer, a former Westonka School Board member whose record of service as a district parent, community member and on the school board continues to characterize the contributions made by the award nominees. Bremer served on the Westonka School Board from 2004 until her death in 2017.

    The community members recognized are leaders in positively impacting the lives and experiences of students and their families and advancing the mission and vision of the school district. Any Westonka staff member, parent or community member may nominate candidates for the award. Nominees may be individuals, district volunteer organizations, financial contributors or business partners. Current Westonka staff and students and previous winners are not eligible.
