TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX) – The Twin Falls School District has been named recipient of the Idaho Education Association’s Betty Roper Public Relations Award.

The IEA Board of Directors recently made the announcement, inviting district officials to the Delegate Assembly Awards Ceremony on April 22 in Boise.
