Industrial Tech instructor Stu Ostendorf was also honored as an All-Star Teacher. The event is sponsored by the Range Engineering Council (REC). 

The mission of REC is to support and facilitate educational programs and activities that promote awareness of and encourage participation in
STEM
(Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). 

Only 17 students from across the Iron Range received this honor. Samantha and Austin both received a $500 college scholarship and will receive an additional $1,000 if they choose to go to Iron Range Engineering.

The students and staff were also able to network with and receive advice from professionals in the field.
