At its May Steering Committee Meeting, Youth Connect members signed letters of recognition, thanking four individuals (and their organizations) for outstanding service to the youth of our community. Among those recognized:
Mark Gensheimer, for his work in getting fathers engaged in discussions about underage drinking;
Miriam Rader, an active leader at the Sewickley Community Center, for that agency's work with teens in afterschool programs;
Kelly Rottmund, the teen librarian at Sewickley Public Library, for the care and concern she exhibits in her work with local students;
the Reverend Dana Jones, senior pastor of The Presbyterian Church, Sewickley, and associate pastor Scott Hoffman, for the support they and the church provide to area youth through the afterschool program and the new community youth worker position.
Heart-felt thanks and congratulations to our Community Contributors!
