Lynnville-Sully Superintendent Shane Ehresman was recently at a Sully Betterment Committee meeting when talk of how people and businesses from the L-S community are recognized for the services they provide was discussed. They discussed how local businesses are recognized for their contribution to the community one night at half time of a basketball game but decided that there should be something else done for the individuals who are making or who have made valuable contributions to the community.

Ehresman recently approached the L-S newspaper staff about creating a feature article that would periodically appear in editions of the Hawk Talk throughout the year recognizing an individual for their contributions to the L-S community as a “community difference maker”. After some coordinating and discussing between the Hawk Talk editorial board and Ehresman, a plan for the feature has been put together and the Hawk Talk editorial board is aiming to feature a community difference maker as early as next month.

Nominees for this honor should be people who are or who have positively impacted the L-S community. Upon the reviewing of nominations, the Hawk Talk editorial board will make the final selection of an individual to feature. The article will be featured in editions of the Hawk Talk periodically.

If you have any questions about this honor, process, or wish to nominate a deserving individual of the L-S community, please email the Hawk Talk editorial board at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
