The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:
* Bravo to the beginning of the next project at Jamestown College. The college demolished J-House to make way for the new McKenna-Thielsch Center, which will provide more lab space for the science and nursing departments.
* Bravo to the Carrington Cardinaires dance team, which made history by sweeping all four categories in the North Dakota Association of Dance and Drill’s State Dance Team Championship. The 16 girls won the the jazz, pom, high kick and hip hop categories to be the first team to sweep the state competition.
* Bravo to Leanne Buckley, who is organizing fundraisers to raise money to purchase a remote operated vehicle for local first responders. Buckley’s partner, the late Darrin Ackerman, went through the ice in December and was ultimately located with the use of an ROV from another city. The Jamestown Dive and Rescue Team wants to purchase an ROV and Buckley wants to help.
* Bravo to those people who donated money to help nonprofits through the Giving Hearts Day fundraiser on Valentine’s Day. During a 24-hour period, Dakota Medical Foundation and Impact Foundation matched donations made online to certain charities — up to $4,000.
* Bravo to the Buffalo City Striders, a local group that plans to hold weekly community walks starting in June to bring attention to the city’s walking and hiking trails. The group plans to hold the community walks into August. The 30-minute walks will feature a different trail each week.
