Retired Winona Teacher Margie White Receives Educator Award

Margie White, a retired elementary school teacher from Winona, Minnesota, was recently awarded the Educator Award by the South East Retirement Association of Minnesota. The award is given to retired educators who have made significant contributions to education both inside and outside the classroom. White taught first through fifth grades in Dakota and at Washington-Kosciusko in Winona for 35 years before retiring in 2001.

Apart from her teaching career, White has been actively involved in various education organizations, including the American Association of University Women, the Learning Club of Winona, Phi Delta Kappa, Delta Kappa Gamma, and her church.

Edna Thayer from SEREAM described White as a « worthy recipient » who was « an excellent teacher » and « very active in contributing to the community. »

White’s Contributions to Education and Community

White’s dedication to education did not end with her retirement. She continued to be involved in various education organizations and community groups, emphasizing the importance of networking and staying informed about what’s going on in both teaching and the world. White was also a faculty union representative from 1975 to 1997 and was active in negotiations, including the county schools merger to Winona District 861.

White’s unassuming personality, helpfulness, and negotiation skills were praised by Thayer, who said that White must have been a good negotiator during her 22 years as a faculty union representative. White expressed her pride in both her teaching career and her work toward education after retirement.
