Peterson earns Veteran Corps service award

Becky Peterson spent six years serving in the Minnesota Army National Guard with deployment to Iraq, but her service to her country didn’t stop there. After leaving the guard and going to college, Peterson now serves with the Minnesota Reading Corps as a tutor and professional learning group leader at Lakeside Elementary. 
 
On Monday, May 23, during National Military Appreciation Month, Peterson was honored for this extended service with a National Veterans Corps pin presented by her program manager, Megan Peterson. The National Veterans Corps recognizes veterans who continue to serve in their community after leaving the military. 
 
“We are here to acknowledge your service to the students at your site, the state of Minnesota and the nation,” Megan Peterson said. 
 
Peterson’s service is something that needs to be celebrated, Megan Peterson said. 
 
 
“She has been a wonderful tutor and Professional Learning Group leader this year,” Megan Peterson said. “We are so lucky to have her."
