Tom Kavanaugh Receives Award

Mission Award

“Living” the ISD 116 Mission AWARD Pillager High School


Pillager School works to create an environment that provides top quality educational opportunities for all learners through community involvement.
Pillager High School recognizes Tom Kavanaugh as a recipient of this award
"It takes a community to raise a child.” Fortunately for Pillager and our secondary school community, we have Tom. Tom has made a habit of saying "yes" to any educational or positive initiative that comes his way.  A co-owner of Kavanaugh’s Resort, Tom recently said “yes” to providing assistance in the setup of Pillager’s ProStart Program.  He has been instrumental in providing products and equipment for students use in the program.   He said "yes" to mentoring our students both in the classroom and at state competition. He said "yes" to being a guest chef for the Education Foundation Dinners and bringing other chefs along; students were able to work side-by-side with these chefs.  He said “yes” to working for a grant with the Chamber for needed classroom equipment.  He said “yes” numerous times to various volunteer activities that have benefited OUR students.
