Good Citizens Honored

During the May 18 Wheaton City Council meeting, the Community Relations Commission honored a group of residents with awards recognizing the many ways they have given back to the community. Many of the faces of those residents are very familiar to District 200. From large-scale fundraising efforts to working one-on-one with residents in need, this year’s Good Citizen Awards recognized students, adults and groups who have made a difference in Wheaton.
Student Category
Heidi Nassos, Wheaton Warrenville South High School, raised $17,434 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation with her six years of lemonade stands and bake sales. The award also recognized her outstanding athletic and scholastic achievements.

Patrick Fitzgerald, Wheaton Warrenville South High School, dedicated 80 hours toward his Eagle Scout project restoring the central water feature in the school’s Memorial Garden, which honors students and staff who have passed away.
Group Category
High school students Emma Sporer, Christina Adams, Jess Stransky and Jordan Wicks created the Kickball Classic for the Ross K. MacNeill Foundation to end pediatric brain cancer. The event raised more than $3,500 for pediatric brain cancer research, and more than 100 people participated.  
Adult Category
Susan Dansdill, the Battle of the Books volunteer leader at Washington Elementary School. The award recognized the many hours she spends preparing for lessons and leading 30 students, in addition to teaching religious education at her church and being an Art Smart teacher at Washington Elementary School.

Anne Wanzenberg, who has served as Longfellow’s PTA president, raising funds for students to participate in field trips who could not otherwise afford them. She also volunteers her time through the City’s Police and Fire Commission and through fundraising activities to serve others who are less fortunate.

Kenna Anderson, for her continual support of Wheaton Warrenville South’s academic and athletic programs, fundraising for a cancer fund she started in her daughter’s name, and for providing foundational support to fund a scholarship honoring celebrated teacher Tom Todd.

Ron Smith, who has served as a Cub and Boy Scout adult leader for 12 years. He has devoted much of his time mentoring scouts and attending training classes to become a better leader.
