Michael Jordan. Jay Leno. Denny Carlson. Only the greats retire twice.
Join Youth First Community of Promise as they honor retiring Superintendent Denny Carlson on June 5, 5:30-7 p.m., at the Courtyards of Andover, located at 13545 Martin S. NW, in Andover. Tickets are available at www.youth1st.net, or by calling 763-421-8530.
Youth First, which calls Carlson a “tremendous supporter,” will be using proceeds from the event to create the “Dennis Carlson Scholars of Youth First.” The program will help Youth First kids realize their dreams of going to college by overcoming some typical barriers that may stand in the way of continuing education including application fees, admission test fees, campus visits, vision tests and eyeglasses, etc.
KARE 11’s Renee Tessman will emcee the event, which will include tributes from Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton, Commissioner of Education Brenda Cassellius, other community and education leaders and special guests.
