Welcome to Washburn Public Schools


On Tuesday, March 21st, Mr. Seppa was awarded the Rotary Club’s “Service Above Self” Award.   Being as selfless as he is, Mr. Seppa used the opportunity to speak to the Rotary membership the about the profession of teaching, as a representative for all teachers.  He said, “I am extremely honored to have been chosen for this award. Going “above and beyond” is a characteristic of so many in the profession and there are many deserving individuals.”  Mr. Seppa is no doubt a deserving individual, using much of his free time to volunteer for local music venues, theater, city organizations and festivals, and the Lion Club.  We are very proud to have Mr. Seppa as part of our staff!  Congrats, Mr. Seppa….well deserved
