Former Winona Senior High School history teacher Gene Pelowski was honored during halftime of the Winhawks’ football game against Northfield on Friday night.
Pelowski has served in the Minnesota House of Representatives since winning a seat in 1986 and was instrumental in bringing the mini legislative session to Winona last week.
It was the first mini session held by legislators since 1997, and came on the 30-year anniversary of the last one held in Winona in 1989.

Since 1975, he has organized the Model Legislature, a one-of-a-kind hands-on immersive educational activity, held in Winona.
