Congrats to Two Familiar Faces of Ward 7

Because they are too modest, Ms V will put the information out there.  Congratulations to two familiar faces in Ward 7.  The Community Foundation for the National Capital Region have selected Julia Irving and Maceo Thomas as recipients of the 2011 Linowes Leadership Award.

Ms. V thinks that both of these individuals are MORE than deserving for this award.

Maceo Thomas 
Excerpt from bio: Maceo Thomas is a mover and shaker, but not in the traditional sense. A native of the Washington area, he has made Ward 7 his home and is genuinely committed to organizing social change in creative and unique ways that educate and engage the entire East of the River community.  

Julia Irving
Excerpt from bio: Julia has a clear vision for what a community should look like – engaged citizens, safe neighborhoods, and opportunities for work and growth for all residents. She encourages community members to build this community, identifies goals and outcomes and the resources needed to get the job done right. Then she begins thinking about what’s next!
