East Geauga Kiwanis had their annual awards night on June 19 at First United Methodist Church of Middlefield. The club recognized freshmen from Berkshire and Cardinal High Schools, scholarship winners from both high schools and the recipients of The Big Heart Awards. The Big Heart – Outstanding Community Service Award was given to Mandy Randles and Shannon Majewski for their work with young people. Ms. Majewski has also been a big sister for the past nine years and explained how Big Brothers and Big Sisters is now expanding services, making a difference in the lives of foster children in our county. Mrs. Randles is a principal who models a positive attitude, fostering respect and inspiring the best in young people wherever she goes. Both are exceptional mentors and role models in our area. We are fortunate to have both leaders in our community.
