Bravo to volunteers at Community Thanksgiving Dinner

The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:

  • Bravo to Adam Gehlhar, Jamestown High School principal, who received the Milken Educator Award this week. Gehlhar was honored at a school assembly and is one of only 45 teachers nationwide to be honored with the award this year. Gehlhar was honored for introducing project-based learning, integrating science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics into the school curriculum, serving as a role model and developing collaborative internships. The award includes a $25,000 prize.
  • Bravo to the Stutsman County Commission approving a project to dredge a 50-foot-wide channel near the island at Jamestown Reservoir. The channel closed off north of the island bridge and water quality is expected to improve with the dredging project, which will be paid through the county, North Dakota Game and Fish Department, Dakota Anglers and U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.
  • Bravo to Wimbledon and Washburn, which have been chosen to be part of the Livable Communities program, a pilot program offered through the North Dakota office of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development. The program goal is to provide support to communities as they develop a quality of life strategy. The program focuses on “creating an atmosphere where people want to live, to attract people and jobs to a community,” according to Emily Brown, USDA Rural Development.
  • Bravo to the organizers and other volunteers who helped at the Community Thanksgiving Dinner on Thanksgiving Day at Concordia Lutheran Church. There were 677 people who ate the free meal.
  • Editorials are the opinion of Jamestown Sun management and the newspaper’s editorial board.
