Volunteers honored in Highland
HIGHLAND — City officials recently recognized two local volunteers during National Volunteer Appreciation Week, April 15 to 21.
At the April 17 city council meeting, Mayor Pro Tempore Brian Braithwaite presented Highland City Arts Council Director Shauna Larson with an award for her service over the past seven years. "Shauna Larson has been integral in the success of Highland City Arts Council," Braithwaite said.
The arts council brings "incredible" events to the city including arts and other programs for musicians, potters, painters and thespians. These programs help engage youth, he said.
"Shauna's committee shows up with her and supports her," Council Member Kurt Ostler said. "They get their hands dirty for the city."
Also recognized that night was Beautification Committee Chair Laura Dawson who for five years has headed up the committee and implemented programs including Adopt-A-Patch and the Highland Fling garden tours all while battling health issues. (Dawson was unable to attend that night).
"She is passing responsibilities on to a new chair and we wanted to let her know how much we appreciate her," Braithwaite said.
Both Larson and Dawson also received a volunteer recognition certificate from the Lt. Governor's office.
