PSEA President Jim Testerman receives Sol Hoffman Award
PSEA President Jim Testerman was honored for his leadership and service to public education, school employees, and the Commonwealth at a recent event. The Keystone Research Center presented its Sol Hoffman Award to President Testerman at a June awards dinner.
Testerman’s advocacy on behalf of public education, PSEA members, and labor benefit “every kid who’s ever gone to a public school in Pennsylvania,” said Tom Wolf, of York’s Wolf Organization, who introduced Testerman at the ceremony.
“He cares about the quality of education teachers provide,” said Wolf, adding Testerman has advocated for Keystone Research Center and progressives throughout the years.
Testerman said it is an honor to be the voice of PSEA’s 191,000 members, and to work with KRC’s research and advocacy on Pennsylvania's economy and public policy.
Presented to individuals for outstanding service to KRC and to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, this award is given in honor of Sol Hoffman, a founder of the Keystone Research Center, and a leader in building a dynamic and progressive labor movement in the state.
