The Andrew Christopher Randall Travel Award was established in 1991 by former District 196 Superintendent and Minnesota Education Commissioner Dr. Ruth Randall Benson. She established the award in memory of her grandson Andrew, who died from cancer at age 14 in September 1990. The award is given to honor the employees at the schools Andrew attended – Valley Middle and Southview Elementary – for the sensitivity, humor, kindness, love and mutual respect that marked their relationship with Andrew. The $2,000 cash award is designated for travel because it brought great pleasure to Andrew. The award is also supported financially by Andrew’s parents, Robert and Laurie Randall.
