With the coming of winter and the holiday season, it’s also time again to tell the stories about the important work the members of North Dakota United do! That’s what United Voices, the official publication of NDU, does best. We hope that you will agree as you leaf through the pages of our winter 2019 issue. Inside, you will find NDU member profiles on the 2020 North Dakota Teacher of the Year, Sara Medalen of Minot, three of her fellow finalists, and the 2020 NDU Education Support Professional of the Year, Alexis Mathias of Fargo. Plus more information about the Fargo negotiations impasse from Fargo Education Association President (and NDU Vice President) Dave Marquardt, our President’s Post feature on all the many reasons for NDU members to be thankful, the Lunch Aid benefit concert that NDU helped put together, and info you need to know about the upcoming 2020 NDU Delegate Assembly. Happy holidays, from all of us at North Dakota United and United Voices!
