Roseville Area High School Assistant Principal Angie McGaster-Woods was named a recipient of the 2016 City of Roseville Human Rights Commission Award. According to the HRC, “the recognition program provides the community with the opportunity to nominate individuals, groups, and organizations for meritorious service in the pursuit and advocacy of human rights. It encompasses Roseville residents and anyone working on behalf of Roseville residents.”

In nominating McGaster-Woods for the award, RAHS Principal Jenny Loeck wrote, “Angie has earned multiple promotions at RAHS due to her hard work, dedication, caring touch, listening ear, creative ability to problem solve, and her steadfast commitment to being a champion for our students and families of color.” She continued, “RAHS would not be the safe, welcoming, and all-inclusive school community we are today without the leadership impact of Ms. Angie McGaster-Woods.”

McGaster-Woods received the award during a presentation at the Nov. 28 Roseville City Council meeting. Her family and fellow staff members were in attendance as she received the award. 

Community activist Sherry Sanders was also recognized with the award.

Roseville resident Tom Turba was inducted into the North Star Museum of Boy Scouting and Girl Scouting’s Founders Hall on Nov. 12. Turba, second from right as seen with family, was inducted as a “Trailblazer” and has been involved in scouting since the early 1980s when he began helping out with Roseville’s Troop 297. The museum is located in North St. Paul; Founders Hall inductees are commemorated on a plaque.
