• STEPHANIE COLE ADAMS – in “community” for her remarkably innovative and tireless leadership in reclaiming the Massachusetts Avenue Park through such initiatives as “Blanket the Park.”
• COMMUNITY POLICE OFFICERS Jeanan SHARPE & Joe SZAFRANSKI – in “unity” for their remarkably compassionate and enthusiastic interaction with West Siders of all ages, but particularly kids & teens
• JOHN STARKEY, PRINCIPAL @ LAFAYETTE HIGH SCHOOL – in “empowerment” for his remarkably humble and personal example of investment in an assets-based approach to building community through education
Additionally, WSCS is conducting a community-wide nomination process for REMARKABLE West Side Teens. Individuals and organizations working with teens ages 13-19 are invited to nominate a teen who is remarkable in one of six categories: collaboration, community, diversity, empowerment, excellence or unity.
