Earlier in the month, Beloit Memorial High School jazz band director and Beloit Education Association member Chris Behrens was featured on WKOW TV in Madison because his nationally renowned program received an unusual recognition.

Another group of Region 6 leaders led a “For the Record” panel in August 2015 to discuss the strength of our union and how Wisconsin’s labor and education policies impact students in our part of the state.
