Governor Tony Evers Visits DDSD

The Delavan-Darien School District welcomed Governor Tony Evers on Monday, May 1, at Phoenix Middle School. The Governor stopped by to talk to students and staff who are participating in our peer-led mental health program, Hope Squad, throughout the District. The Governor met with about 50 students who are active members of Hope Squad in grades 4-12. Funding is available for this program through Walworth County Department of Health and Human Services and Kids Get Ahead grant funding provided by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. This funding also pays for our universal instruction on social emotional learning at the High School, BASE Education, and Youth Mental Health First Aid training for staff and the community.
