Bravo to Teen CERT program

The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:

• Bravo to the Teen Community Emergency Response Team program, which teaches Jamestown High School students how to respond to emergencies. The annual program culminated last week in 103 students participating in a mock disaster exercise in which they were tested in using the skills they learned.

• Bravo to a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) project in two Jamestown elementary schools that combined art and core subjects to create a professional choreographed dance routine. Third- and fourth-graders in Washington and Louis L’Amour Elementary schools created “Pyramids on the Prairie,” 3-D dimensional pyramids with student art on them. The three-year project included partnerships with community groups and businesses along with teachers attending a national conference in Washington, D.C.

• Bravo to the completion of a $49.8 million airport terminal project at Minot. The new terminal offers the latest in technology for safety and security, officials said. A ribbon-cutting ceremony this week marked the completion of the terminal, which opened in March. The airport has been going through a five-year improvement project estimated at about $94 million.

• Bravo to North Dakota getting attention on a national scale from the Republican and Democratic candidates for president. Republican Donald Trump will speak at the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference May 26 in Bismarck. Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders spoke in Fargo and Bismarck on Friday, while former President Bill Clinton will stump for his wife, Hillary Clinton, on May 20 in Fargo. A state office for Clinton’s campaign is also being opened in North Dakota.
