The "Nebraska State Education Association" says Executive Director Maddie Fennell is stepping down for family health reasons, and the NSEA Board has named its Director of Advocacy, Trish Guinan, as her replacement.
The NSEA says Guinan is a 43-year member of the union, who taught mathematics at the secondary and college levels.
She began her association work as a field representative for members in 1996, becoming Director of Member Rights in 2000, and Director of Advocacy in 2012.
Fennell, the 2007 Nebraska Teacher of the Year, has served as NSEA Executive Director since 2017.
