“It is a pleasure and a privilege to work with my outstanding colleagues in the Music Division at Anoka-Ramsey, and all of the faculty and staff I work with at the college’s Cambridge Campus,” Anderson said. “They are all outstanding people, and educators. I am excited about the opportunity to work with the Board of Directors of the MMEA. This fine organization has impacted many thousands of students in its history, and I am looking forward to be involved with their continuing work.”
