Doing Your Part

“Doing Your Part” was the theme of the Kids Voting Mesa County (Colorado) February banquet at Colorado Mesa University. More than 200 community members, students, and educators were in attendance. K-12 students were honored for “doing their part”, because of their work with bullied special education students, serving as homeless helpers and reading mentors, leaving the high school football field to reach out to other less fortunate high school students, working to provide light to families overseas with no sustainable light source, addressing the cause of child soldiers overseas, etc. Local “top dogs” (County Commissioner, City council member, University President, Mayor, Sheriff, Chief of Police, President of the Chamber of Commerce, University Student Body President) had the chance to meet the students they would be dining with and enjoying free gift certificates for lunch donated by local restaurants.
