The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:
- Bravo to Marketplace for Kids, which was held in Jamestown on Tuesday at the Harold Newman Arena. The event encourages entrepreneurship in youth grades 3-8 and also exposes young people to potential careers.
- Bravo to Dillon Shaffer of Jamestown, who recently earned the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank for the Boy Scouts of America. Shaffer also received the 2018 Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year award for his project to modernize the youth computer lab at Trinity Lutheran Church. Shaffer is a sophomore at Jamestown High School.
- Bravo to the six weeks of training provided to students at Jamestown High School that culminated in the annual Teen Community Emergency Response Team disaster drill in the JHS gymnasium on May 2. The students were certified as teen CERT community emergency responders by Stutsman County Emergency Management. The program teaches students how to respond to emergencies and includes law enforcement, fire department and ambulance officials among others.
- Bravo to Kylee Voigt, Meghan Orr, Carmen DeVries and Kristin Breaux, members of the 4x400 relay team at the University of Jamestown, who qualified for national competition after winning the women’s 4x400 relay event May 4 at the Great Plains Athletic Conference Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Yankton, S.D. The Jimmies’ season-best time of 3 minutes, 55.74 seconds broke the national provisional standard of 3:57.00. Nationals is May 23-25 in Gulf Shores, Ala. Also competing at nationals are DeVries, along with UJ’s Julia Johnson, in the triple jump, and Allison Foster in the women’s half marathon.
