The Kody O’Bear Community Youth Award was recently presented to Christian Jackson of Seaford, Delaware. He is a 2018 graduate of Laurel High School of Laurel, Delaware.
Christian was chosen as a recipient of this award because of his volunteering for the Laurel library, was a part of the team to help rehab properties for Habitat for Humanity and was an integral part of a program to purchase and install fitness equipment at Fisher Park. After Jackson completes a mentor program required for his summer internship, he will design, plan, budget for and execute his own eight-week program at the Laurel library.
This award was created and is presented to honor local students who give back to their communities, organizations or programs that support the mission of improving the lives of area children or adults. The Kody O’Bear Community Youth Award is a way the youth can be applauded for their support of the communities they live in or have a passion to help. Without the support of youth, many organizations would not be able to continue their missions.
The Kody O’Bear Awards team suggests that community members thank these young people and support their passion, talents and volunteerism. The award is presented by Delmarva’s Community Bear, Kody O’Bear, who is the ambassador for promoting positive and healthy activities for kids and adults of all ages.
