Chamber Educator of the Year: O’Connor a teacher of note
Ben O’Connor comes off as a modest guy. The director of choir at Park High School doesn’t seem like someone who sings his own praises.
Others have, however. O’Connor, of Woodbury, recently was honored as Educator of the Year by the Cottage Grove Area Chamber of Commerce. He accepted the award May 16 at the organization’s Annual Banquet.
“It’s just humbling to receive this because I know full well there are other teachers at Park who are equally deserving,” O’Connor said.
