Bravo to Wishek teacher

The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:

  • Bravo to Dreamos, the canine officer for the Stutsman County Sheriff’s Office, who received two state awards recently. The dog received the Working Award at the North Dakota Veterinary Medical Association’s annual meeting on Aug. 7, and was inducted into the organization’s Animal Hall of Fame. Dreamos has been with the department since 2015.
  • Bravo to North Dakota being awarded $10 million from the U.S. Department of Justice to help cover costs associated with the Dakota Access Pipeline protests. The total costs incurred were $38 million between the state and Morton County. Sens. Heidi Heitkamp and John Hoeven said they plan to pursue more funding.
  • Bravo to Sarah Crossingham, a teacher at Wishek Public School who was recently named the 2017 North Dakota History Teacher of the Year. The award is sponsored by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History and supported by the State Historical Society of North Dakota.
  • Bravo to the community of Robinson, N.D., for working together to preserve the old City  Hall building. The recent first CenterFest event, a free block party, was held in part to inspire involvement in restoring the building, according to Bill Bender, Robinson mayor.
  • Editorials are the opinion of Jamestown Sun management and the newspaper’s editorial board.
