Another Awesome Win!

A hardworking team of people from Lambton College had the chance to pitch an idea to Sarnia's Awesome Foundation last week. Though they'd had only a few days' notice before presentation day, they'd been working on their idea for weeks. The team put together a creative and impressive proposal, and . . . . they won!

The pitch: help ensure the success of the second annual Global Citizenship Summit, to be held at the Lambton Event Centre on November 18, 2015. You may have read about last year's summit--the night, which featured interesting speakers, wonderful food, and the chance to learn about many different cultures, was a huge success, and this year will be great again.

Thank you to the wonderful and dedicated team--Kari Roos, Katie Horvath, Suhail Babwani, Amy Weiler, Zackery Roos,  Bonnie Szeto, Tunji Ibidunni, Emily Fortney Blunt, Rebecca Marshall, Ruth Geurts, and more--who worked so hard to make this happen in such a short amount of time. 

Thanks also to the generous folks behind Sarnia's Awesome Foundation. You may have read about the Awesome Foundation on this blog before, since Lambton College's Aboriginal Student Council won Awesome Foundation funding to host the Round Dance last January. 

Stay tuned for more information on the Global Citizenship Summit!
