Maple Lake celebrates teacher signing day

A few days ago, a local TV station gave a ridiculous amount of airtime to a local high school football player who announced what college he wants to go to.

We love our sports and the people who play them, but something is a little out of whack. Football players aren’t going to change many people’s lives.

Teachers? That’s another story.

So why don’t we make a big deal out of students who announce what college they’re going to go to in order to become teachers?

On Wednesday Thursday, Maple Lake did.

Congratulations to these seniors and everyone at Maple Lake High School involved in this morning's Future Educator…

It is believed to be the first such ceremony in the state.
