The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:

  • Bravo to Jamestown Tourism for working to increase visitor experiences at Frontier Village with two planned "parkette" projects. One parkette project is creating a railroad track loop with railcars for children and adults powered by turning cranks and interpretive panels with the history of the railroad in Jamestown. The second parkette would highlight the homesteading experience and is in the design phase at this time. Funds are being raised for the projects.
  • Bravo to students from Trinity Bible College and Graduate School for helping pack a planned 12,000 meals for Liberia at Orphan Grain Train in Jamestown on March 24. The students packaged ingredients including rice and seasoning into single-serving meals that are expected to be delivered to Liberia at the end of April.
  • Bravo to Farmers Union Enterprises and North Dakota Farmers Union for donating 180,000 pounds of ribs to food banks in South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Montana and North Dakota. In May, Farmers Union delivered 150,000 pounds of pork ribs to food banks in the five-state area.
  • Bravo to Mason Walters of the University of Jamestown, who was one of 10 men's basketball players named to the 2021 NAIA national championship all-tournament team. He was also was one of 12 athletes named to the NAIA first-team All-America team on Thursday.
  • Bravo to Gracie Gunderson of Medina/Pingree-Buchanan, a member of the National Archery in the Schools Program who is currently ranked No. 1 in the nation in the 3D range division and qualified for the state tournament.
  • Bravo to Hanna DeMars, University of Jamestown women's basketball sophomore who was named NAIA honorable mention All-American last week.
  • Bravo to Shauna Kemp, who is competing this week at the U.S. Olympic Trials for a spot on the 2021 U.S. Olympic women's wrestling team. Kemp is the head coach for the University of Jamestown women’s wrestling team. She qualified for the trials in December of 2019 at the U.S. Open competition but the trials were postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
