Bemidji youth receives Red Cross Leadership award

Sara Schomburg of Bemidji recently was named the 2014 American Red Cross Northern Minnesota Region Youth Volunteer Leadership award winner. This award recognizes Schomburg for the valuable work she has accomplished in the past two years as a board member of the American Red Cross North Star Chapter based in Bemidji. While a board member of the North Star Chapter, Schomburg assisted with planning American Red Cross Holiday Mail for Heroes events at local senior living facilities, recruiting new Red Cross board members, including a student board member who will replace Schomburg and sharing information about the North Star Chapter on its Facebook page. Schomburg received her award at the regional American Red Cross volunteer recognition and annual meeting June 24 held in Golden Valley, Minn.
