BISMARCK, N.D. – Senator John Hoeven today congratulated the students, educators and families of Roosevelt Elementary School on their designation as a 2022 National Blue Ribbon School. In honor of their achievements, Hoeven presented the school with a U.S. flag flown over the U.S. Capitol, which will be displayed along with the National Blue Ribbon School flag, a special symbol representing the school’s exemplary teaching and learning.

“The designation as a National Blue Ribbon School is proof of the excellence and dedication of the entire community surrounding Roosevelt Elementary, including the students and their families, teachers, administration and support staff,” said Hoeven. “Their hard work represents the best of our state and helps ensure a bright future for North Dakota and our nation.”
