Three young people in our community will be presented with the 2013 Youth Leadership Awards by Mayor Eddie Francis at the 2013 Mayor’s Walk and City Birthday Celebration this afternoon.

The awards, put on by the Mayor’s Youth Advisory Committee, focus on Community Involvement, Volunteerism and Civic Engagement.

The three winners are:

Kristy McLean is a current University of Windsor student who is also the incoming President of the student group Enactus which seeks to improve the quality of life and standard of living for residents of Windsor-Essex. A twenty-one year resident of Windsor, McLean has been named HSBC’s Woman Leader of Tomorrow for Central Canada and was awarded the Odette School of Business’ Humphrey Group Leadership Award for Women. McLean is determined to pursue a career in Windsor Essex and is an advocate for promoting change within Windsor-Essex.

Nick Tonial has lived in the city for seventeen years and was the Prime Minister of St. Anne’s student Council. Tonial helped organize and lead his school’s Terry Fox Walk which raised roughly $25,000 for the charity. Tonial has dedicated over one-hundred and fifty hours to community service in Windsor-Essex over the past year (well over the forty required hours to graduate) and lives his life based on the motto of: “It’s not what you take from the world, but it’s what you give back”.

In addition, Easterbrook has volunteered roughly one-hundred and twenty hours of her time to her community and school and she hopes to return to Windsor to study medicine after completing her undergraduate degree.
