On Monday, July 7, the Lakewood City Council honored Marnina Klinkhammer, a graduate of Harrison Prepatory Academy, Youth Councilmember and winner of the Association of Washington Cities’ Center for Quality Communities Scholarship.
Klinkhammer read the essay she submitted to AWC as part of the application process. It described her efforts to raise money for the victims of 2013’s Typhoon Haiyan, which ravaged swaths of the Philippines. (Klinkhammer is part Filipino herself)
Check out our video coverage of the event, which featured Mayor Don Anderson honoring her, on the City of Lakewood’s YouTube channel: http://youtu.be/E9px8tP4n0I .
Congratulations, Marnina! #IamLakewood
