Fond du Lac’s Joe Fenrick, a Fond du Lac County Board Supervisor and a candidate for the state’s Superintendent of Public Instruction, is joining the Green Lake County Dems & Friends at its Saturday, Oct. 3, meeting in Green Lake.
Fenrick, a science teacher at Fond du Lac High School, has been a frequent visitor to the meetings when they were held at the Caestecker Public Library. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, meetings of the Green lake County Dems are now being held outdoors at W872 Leslie Ln, Green Lake.
The setting offers a small natural amphitheater which allows for social distancing. Attendees at the meeting, which is open to the public, are encouraged to wear masks or other suitable face coverings. Start time for the meeting is 10 a.m.
According to an article in the Fond du Lac Reporter, “In 2012-13, Fenrick was named Fond du Lac High School’s Teacher of the Year, and has served on the district’s equity and excellence committee which he chaired, the literacy committee, the special education delivery committee, and the COVID-19 team, tasked with opening the district’s schools.
In the spring of 2016, Fenrick was nominated for a Student Choice in Teaching Excellence Award at UW-Oshkosh. He also helped form a partnership between Fond du Lac High School and UW-Oshkosh that provides high school students with the opportunity to work with professors as research lab assistants.”
The election for state superintendent is April 6. 2021 If more than two candidates collect enough signatures to be on the ballot, a primary will be held Feb. 16. Currently there are two other announced candidates for the position.
