Now that so much positive growth has taken place on the West Side, it’s time that some people get recognized for their hard work. There have been so many people who have done their part, to ensure that the West Side of the city gets cleaned up, from significant home investments to community gardens to safety watches to trash pick-ups. There’s so much going on these days that it’s hard to keep track. For years, selfless individuals have been helping to pick up the pieces. Now, it’s time to award those who have helped to build up the West Side.
Adult awardees are:
- Stephanie Cole Adams for remarkable innovation and tireless leadership in reclaiming the Massachusetts Avenue Park through such initiatives as “Blanket the Park”
- Community Police Officers Jeanan Sharpe & Joe Szafranski for remarkably compassionate and enthusiastic interaction with West Siders of all ages, particularly kids & teens
- Principal John Starkey for a remarkably humble and personal example of investment in an assets-based approach to building community through education
TEEN awardees and they are spectacular:
- Sophia Bahati Adam for her contributions to EMPOWERMENT;
- Gabriel Cohen for his contributions to COMMUNITY; and
- Omar Awil Farah for his contributions to COMMUNITY.
You might not know their names, but you have most likely been impacted by their work.
