Pablo Orozco is Making a Difference

May 18, 2008

Pablo Orozco is the November 2008 recipient of the Healthy Community Initiative “Making a Difference Award”. The award celebrates those groups and individuals in the community who have a positive influence on Northfield youth.

Pablo was nominated for the work he does with Northfield youth in the elementary schools.  He is currently volunteers with the PLUS program at Greenvale Park Elementary School and works tirelessly to help youth find their potential.  His mentors describe Pablo as “a great example of how support and encouragement make a positive impact on a young person’s life.”

Lisa Nelson, Bridgewater Elementary School teacher, agrees.  “He made all the difference in our program,” she said. “Pablo is a great example for students.”
