School paper staff, triathlon planners take a bow!

In the course of a week, the Tribune publishes stories about people who went out of their way to help another person, excelled in a specific endeavor, or accomplished something which will make the community of Albert Lea a bit better than it was the day before. Though the list is not all inclusive, it will hopefully remind you of others who also deserve to take a bow.

It’s easy to forget those who deserve some recognition as we grapple with the more serious matters of the community. We’d like to take a moment to highlight those good deeds and ask the following people to take a bow:

– Elise Austad and Trent Miller for being named the Albert Lea Exchange Club’s Youths of the Year.

Email newsletter signup

– The Early Bird Networkers for receiving the Silver Chapter of the Year award.

– The Ahlahasa for being named Best Newspaper by the Minneapolis Star Tribune and Minnesota State High School League; the paper was also honored with an award for best layout and design.

In addition, the staff received a Gold Crown Award from Columbia University Scholastic Press Association for both the news magazine and I-Mag.

– Those who organized a very successful first Land Between the Lakes Triathlon.

Those who participated appreciated their hard work, and those who watched found it an interesting experience.

– Albert Lea High School speech team members who were recognized with awards recently: Anna Cluassen, Kristin Sanderson and Anna Sturtz.

– Daran Lee, Jessica Henderson, Chelsea Anderson and Seth Light, who were recognized by the Elks Club as students of the month.
