Dan Feehan thanks for stopping at MVAC to learn about all we do! ...

As a former teacher, I love spending time with students and educators. Yesterday, an old high school friend of mine invited me to his 9th grade government class to speak with students about public service and policy. Today, I got a chance to tour Minnesota Valley Action Council and learn more about their high-impact Head Start program. Thank you to all the educators across #MN01 for your dedication and hard-work!
