Youth and adult “Asset Builders” honored at luncheon

Press Staff Writer

        Sandusky County Public Health and Prevention Partnership Coalition recently hosted their annual Asset Builder’s Appreciation Luncheon at Anjulina’s in Fremont.
        The event recognized students, adults and faculty from area schools who are involved in building youth developmental assets. These assets, developed by the Search Institute, consist of positive experiences and qualities that help young people make positive choices, which help them become responsible adults.
        Students from each school chose adults that they felt should be recognized for their ability to build assets in youth. Those awarded for encouraging assets in students were Mark Jackson (Gibsonburg Exempted Village Schools), Tony Egbert (Gibsonburg Exempted Village Schools), Nick Wolf (Fremont City Schools), Rich Harman (Woodville Mayor), Michelle Guzman (Lakota Schools) and Deputy Matt Stotz (Lakota Schools SRO).
        Students from Bellevue, Woodmore, Fremont, Gibsonburg and Lakota middle schools gave presentations to the audience on Search Institute’s 40 developmental assets. These groups do a number of projects throughout the school year to help build assets in their schools. Each group received a framed certificate of appreciation for all of their hard work and dedication throughout the school year.
        The event was sponsored by Sandusky County Public Health, Prevention Partnership of Sandusky County, ProMedica Memorial Hospital, and the Mental Health and Recovery Services Board of Sandusky, Seneca and Wyandot counties.
