ALTOONA, Wis. (RELEASE FROM SCHOOL DIST. OF ALTOONA)-- Altoona High School, business teacher, Kelly Ostrander is one of 15 recipients statewide who are being honored with the Governor’s Financial Literacy Award.

Kelly’s award is a lifetime recognition in the category of Legacy, given to organizations, businesses or individuals whose purpose and heritage is ingrained in sustained financial literacy and capability. The lifetime recognition is conferred to recipients only once.

Kelly was nominated by AHS counselor, Jay Mielke. “Kelly’s commitment to teaching personal finance serves to improve the financial literacy of all students in our District. She is most deserving of this special recognition,” said Mielke.

Jason LeMay, AHS principal, said of Kelly, “Her work with financial literacy at Altoona High School has impacted scores of students over the years and there is no doubt that this award is well deserved. Her efforts with the Eau Claire Area Chamber of Commerce, Junior Achievement and other area school districts to provide the "Real Life Academy," among other things, demonstrates that her commitment to students and their financial success is top notch."

“These individuals and organizations have a significant impact on citizens of all ages across the state by helping to enhance their personal financial knowledge and skills," Governor Walker said. “By developing their financial capabilities, our citizens become more savvy consumers, improve their quality of life, and, in the process, contribute to strengthening our economy.”
