WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Thomas Jefferson Elementary was recognized during a virtual ceremony this Friday by the U.S. Department of Education for being awarded the 2020 Exemplary Achievement Gap Closing National Blue Ribbon.

“It’s a team effort. For the whole community... and we have a very special place, that everyone pitches in and works together. And great things happen when you do that. This award is just really a cherry on top of the cake of all of our efforts to achieve that,” explained Principal Brent Johnson.

Wisconsin schools, including Thomas Jefferson, were recognized at 2 p.m. A recorded version will be available later in the day at https://www.youtube.com/user/usedgov.

Thomas Jefferson Elementary was one of only eight recipients in Wisconsin and 317 public schools in the United States.
