Gov. Walz visits Duluth elementary school, reads to students

DULUTH, MN–Minnesota Governor Tim Walz spent Thursday in the Northland visiting students and educators.

The governor’s trip to Hibbing and Duluth was a part of his administration’s statewide education tour to highlight their historic education proposal, which aims to innovate more in schools around the state.

One of the stops included a listening a session with students and educators at Myers-Wilkins Elementary School in Duluth.

There Governor Walz also read a book to students.

“That incredible rainbow of children’s excitement springing up, their engagement listening to us, it was really fun learning,” Walz, a former teacher, said. “This is a learning environment that they obviously want to be in, and that’s a model that we really want to make sure is happening in every corner of the state.”

The governor also visited schools in Winona and Rochester Thursday.
