The Jamestown hands out these bravos this week:
- Bravo to the North Dakota State University Bison for its 28-20 win against James Madison for the NCAA Division I FCS championship on Jan. 11. The victory was the eighth championship for the Bison out of the past nine FCS championships.
- Bravo to the donors who helped the Salvation Army reach its Red Kettle Campaign goal - and surpass it. Recent donations, including one for $40,000, pushed the Salvation Army over its goal of $139,000 to $156,000. But all donations help the Salvation Army reach its goal. The annual drive is crucial for the Salvation Army to provide services throughout the year.
- Bravo to Kameron Selvig, a former all-state setter for the Blue Jay volleyball program, who was named the 2019-20 Gatorade Player of the Year this week. Selvig is the second Blue Jay athlete in school history to earn the title. Selvig was also named the 2019 Co-Senior Athlete of the Year at the conclusion of the 2019 state volleyball tournament.
- Bravo to Daily Bread-Jamestown, for rescuing 31,000 pounds of food in 2019, an increase of 5,000 pounds over the previous year. Drop-off locations for the food are located at First United Methodist Church, Jamestown public schools, James River Senior Citizens Center, St. John’s Lutheran Church, the Gardenette and the James House.
