The Eagan Rotary Club honored fourteen Eagan teachers at their annual Teacher Recognition Luncheon on May 6th at the Eagan Community Center. This year marks the twenty-fifth year the Eagan Rotary has recognized local teachers.


The Outstanding Teacher Awards recognize the men and women of Eagan Schools who represent excellence in the teaching profession.
