Alex Craighead & Nicky Wilks of Journeymen Honored for Making a Difference Now
Their contributions to our island community as teachers in our schools, and coaches and mentors to young people through the Journeymen Institute are why Alex and Nicky were selected by the Vashon Community Scholarship Foundation (VCSF) for the Making a Difference Now award.
This award recognizes local community members who are making a difference every day in the lives of islanders. All who have been touched by their work are invited to make donations in their honor. In turn, honorees select a student from this year's senior class to receive the Making a Difference Now merit scholarship, a link of encouragement and inspiration to the next generation of visionary leaders.
Read about their work in the March 9th issue of the Vashon Beachcomber.
We are not waiting until Alex and Nicky retire to honor their work. They are living their values and making a difference right now. Congratulations and bless you!
