Top 3 Vibrant Communities | November 7 – 11
November 11, 2016 by Blandin Foundation
1. Grand Rapids: for student coordination of a TEDx event that celebrated ways youth can and should be the leaders of today.
“The theme of the day was ‘Today I Am…’ with the idea that students are always told to worry about the future and that they will be the ‘leaders of tomorrow,’ said Dale Christy. “However, they are never told about the importance of living in the present and being leaders today.”
2. Stacy: for one veteran’s commitment to helping others access needed medical care.
3. Prior Lake: for bringing teens and local Rotary mentors together to build relationships that contribute to future success for area youth.
“There’s always going to be something good that comes out of students working with positive, caring adults.”
