Elise Hatlestad receives Caring Youth Award
The St. Louis Park Operations and Recreation Department recognized one of its junior leaders, Elise Hatlestad, at the 29th annual Caring Youth Awards Recognition on Thursday, April 10. Elise has been a junior leader in the Summer Playground Program since 2017. She continually shows a great amount of responsibility, works well with her peers, always has a positive attitude, and takes the initiative to make sure she can be helpful to other leaders and participants. Elise is excited about the opportunity to be a junior leader again this summer!
The Caring Youth Award was started in 1990 by Roland and Doris Larson, members of Westwood Lutheran Church. They created the award to recognize young people in the community for their spirit of caring and concern for others and volunteerism.
