LCAT would like to congratulate our recent Lodi Pride Award Recipients! At the LCAT Advisory Board Meeting on Thursday, June 4, several Lodi Pride Awards were presented to outstanding Lodi residents (both students and adults). Our award recipients include:
Geno Eagan: Geno received a "Caring for Youth with Lodi Pride Award." He has been a faithful volunteer in Beth Sokol's classroom at the Lodi Elementary School for the past four years. He is also a fan of Lodi athletics and has a positive, grateful attitude.
Barb Cook: Barb received a "Caring for Youth with Lodi Pride Award." Barb's nominator, Anne Lembcke, commented on how Barb constantly shows her Lodi Pride and empowers our high school youth. As a Educational Assistant at Lodi High School, Barb encourages our students to attend and participate in co-curricular and athletic activities/events. Additionally, she introduced the Community Closet to students, where they get to select and keep previously clean, used clothing.
Sarah V & Yullen N: Sarah and Yullen received "Outstanding Student Lodi Pride Awards." These outstanding students were nominated by Vince Breunig, Lodi High School Principal. Vince stated, "Sarah and Yullen have been a tremendous help this year with new students who spoke very limited English. They volunteered to translate, sought out and ate lunch with our new students, and found different ways to make these students feel welcome and supported." Congratulations!!!
Sammi B, Shelbi B & Nate J: These students received "Outstanding Student Lodi Pride Awards." They were nominated by Megan Kinonen, Lodi High School Counselor. Megan stated, “Sammi and Shelbi have been very involved with the high school leadership group over the last four years and have all been tremendous leaders in the group. They have helped organize events and have been leaders at the summer retreats, Flip it Forward, Sober Saturdays/Post-Game Parties, and Food Drives and they have been great role models to younger students in the group and in the school.”
“Nate did a lot of work for both Post Game Parties this year. He made announcements about the event, took the initiative to create a sign up sheet to have teams sign up ahead of time, created the brackets, found chaperones, and helped to make sure the tournaments ran smoothly.” Congratulations to all Lodi students!!!
