The City of Elmhurst’s Commission on Youth honored young volunteers at its annual Exemplary Youth Service Awards program held Wednesday, April 18, at Sandburg Middle School in front of a packed house. Ken Bartels served as Master of Ceremonies. District 205 Superintendent Dr. David Moyer and Elmhurst Mayor Steve Morley welcomed the honorees and their families.

The Exemplary Youth Service Awards program recognizes individuals who have demonstrated at least one of the following criteria through volunteer service: the level of involvement should demonstrate an exemplary commitment; the service must contribute to the health and well–being of a worthy individual or group or the community at large; the service should help promote the spirit of volunteerism.

The 83 honorees ranged in age from elementary through high school. Nine groups and 18 individuals were nominated for this year’s awards. Serving as distinguished judges were Elmhurst Police Deputy Chief Michael McLean, Deputy Fire Chief Bill Anaszewiczand Alderman Marti Deuter.Speakers for the evening included Exemplary Youth Service Award recipients from Kartwheels for Kids, a group of five York High School students who have been volunteering and fundraising together since they were fifth graders.

Other Exemplary Youth Service Award recipients included an elementary group known as the Sweet Treats and the following individuals: from Churchville Middle School – Jackie Cimino and Cayliann Gillie and from York High School – Sean Hayes, Dani Kolosiekeand Samantha Uditsky.

The program will air on Uverse Channel 99 and Comcast Channel 6 next month and will also be available for viewing at www.ElmhurstTV.com. The program is linked below.

At Tuesday’s Board of Education meeting, the Board heard from three teachers and an instructional coach about how the infusion of technology via the District’s Mobile Learning Implementation has dramatically changed student engagement in their classrooms. They also provided teacher feedback samples on the topics of creativity, student-to-device ratios and device types.

A video created by the Communications Office demonstrated these new and exciting modes of learning and teaching. Assistant Superintendent of Innovation & Growth Dr. Mark Cohen noted that “these skills fit our concept of being future ready and future focused, allowing for collaboration in the digital space beyond the walls of the classroom.”
