Justice Alan Page to Share Presidential Medal of Freedom with Minneapolis Students
Friday, November 16, 2018 5:55 PM

MINNEAPOLIS – Football Hall-of-Famer, former Minnesota Supreme Court Justice, and Justice Page Middle School (JPMS) school namesake Alan Page is now a Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient. On Monday, Justice Page will share the award, the highest civilian honor in the United States, with the students of JPMS.

Although his numerous awards could fill a wall, Page says he is most proud of his work with students at JPMS, as well as the Page Education Foundation, which he and his late wife, Diane Sims Page, founded in 1988. In accepting the Medal of Freedom, Page acknowledged the people in his life, personal and professional, who helped him succeed. “We all move forward by supporting each other,” he said. “Being awarded the medal gives me a platform to reiterate that message.”

Minneapolis Public Schools Superintendent Ed Graff praised Page for his and Diane’s work with Minneapolis students. “Justice Page is an icon in our school community and sets a positive example for all students to follow,” he said. “All of Minneapolis Public Schools congratulates him on this well-deserved recognition.”

JPMS Principal Erin Rathke echoed those sentiments. “Alan and Diane are an integral part of our school family and heroes to us all. We are deeply honored and proud to celebrate and carry on their legacy,” she said.

On Monday, Page will be interviewed by JPMS students and answer questions about the medal. Additionally, Page Foundation Scholars will present purple No. 88 Page Scholar tee-shirts (88 was Page’s Vikings jersey number) to JPMS students chosen to be in a new Junior Page Scholar program, modeled after the Page Education Foundation’s program for high school graduates. Junior Page Scholars will focus on academic excellence, leadership, and community service. Page will be supporting the program and the students.

When:   Monday, Nov. 19 | 9:30-10:15 AM
