AUSTIN, Minn. (KTTC) -

An Austin principal  is about to be honored in Washington D.C. for excellence in education.

Woodson Kindergarten Center Principal Jessica Cabeen is the 2017 Minnesota National Distinguished Principal. The prestigious award is presented by the National Association of Elementary School Principals. 

Cabeen has been principal at Woodson since 2012. She's worked to make it easy for kids to transition between pre-k and kindergarten, added technology into classrooms, and developed community events like the Everybody Wins Reading Buddy program. 

Woodson students are hosting a sendoff for Cabeen at 1:30 Tuesday afternoon. She and her husband will fly out east on Wednesday. Congratulations!

    Hundreds gather at 160-year-old pioneer church in Lenora for Christmas service

    If you visit Lenora United Methodist Church you'll see a Christmas service the way Laura Ingalls Wilder would have. The church was built in 1856, making it the first church in Fillmore county. Hundreds come out every year to enjoy the festivities the old fashioned way: with a wood stove, oil lamps, and pump organ.
