Honoring Senator Kohl

Wisconsin educators lost one of their biggest advocates and supporters when Senator Herb Kohl passed away on December 27th.  AWSA joined with WEAC, WASDA, and WASB to recognize Senator Kohl’s life of service by providing a posthumous award on the day of his memorial service (January 12, 2024).

Senator Kohl promoted education and educators every chance that he had.  His philanthropic foundation is dedicated to education and recognizes outstanding students, teachers, and principals every year.  In addition, the Kohl Education Foundation sponsors AWSA’s Principal and Associate Principal of the Year programs that recognize the outstanding service that school leaders provide every day.

While his impact will endure, Wisconsin’s educators will miss this humble, generous, and kind leader of leaders.
