Charlie Fisher of Ridgefield High School and Naleigha Williams, an architectural designer for LSW Architects, recognized for their leadership skills
Charlie Fisher stood out for her passion for education as a way to build bridges and her service to young people.
Naleigha Williams was recognized for her dedication in seeking out opportunities for youth and for developing the skills of those around her.
On Tuesday, Fisher and Williams were the recipients of the annual General George C. Marshall Awards, presented by The Historic Trust on behalf of the city of Vancouver’s Celebrate Freedom program.
Fisher is a senior at Ridgefield High School. Williams is an architectural designer for LSW Architects in Vancouver.
Both leaders share an intrinsic value of leading with grace, and transparency, while maintaining their core beliefs, noted a press release from The Historic Trust. The two believe that true forward movement only happens when all boats are lifted.
Each recipient was awarded $3,500, which can be used toward continuing education or professional development.
“We take seriously our role in developing emerging leaders,” said Linda Glover, board chair of The Historic Trust. “The Marshall Awards celebrate the quality of leadership this community experiences, as represented by the extraordinary caliber of nominees.”
According to the Trust, The Marshall Leadership Awards celebrate and support local rising leaders who, like General Marshall, demonstrate integrity, candor, courage, and preparedness while serving a greater good.
Well done ladies!
