Congratulations to Gimaajii Youth Patience for being nominated for the Duluth Branch NAACP’s 2019 Martin Luther King, Jr. “Drum Major For Peace” Award (Youth category). The award is given to those who actively work towards social justice and peace in our communities. Patience is respectful, and is always helping others. She was awarded an award for these attributes last year at her school. She also was part of an anti-bullying club, is a member of the World Beat Drummers, recently spoke at the Duluth School Board Education Committee, participated in a weeklong photography class this summer at AICHO and now represents that art exhibit, and she is active within the AICHO- Gimaajii Children’s programming. She is a treasure in our community, as are all of our youth. The awards will be announced at the MLK Rally at the DECC on January 21. Program starts at noon. Free and open to the public. Congratulations again to Patience and her family on this nomination.
