The Awesome Awards - Nominations

LeAnn Young

Nominated by Scott Holmes
May 15, 2019
Mrs. Young is a tireless worker who never stops doing what is best for the children of rural Alaska. She is a champion of all opportunities for healthy activities and often works more for these opportunities than her professional career as a Special Projects Director for Alaska Gateway School District. She can be found regularly traveling around the state and country to ensure students are exposed to the world outside or our small, rural community. Mrs. Young also focuses on providing these opportunities at little to no cost due to her amazing and AWESOME! grant writing skills. Children of our impoverished community benefit greatly because of her drive to provide opportunities that wouldn't be available otherwise.
