Exclusive: Deb & Laurel with Xavier’s P.R. Dept. blog, answer questions
Today, we have a special guest blog below that Deb and Laurel have co-written, and it even includes the opportunity for our readers to ask them questions directly in the comment box that they will answer as they have time.
COMMUNITIES TOGETHER The Evanston Norwood Xavier (ENX) partnership which was so fruitful is being re-energized and resuming work together as a unified community to collaborate on initiatives. On July 17, ENX offered a bus tour for all three communities to get to know one another. The van went to different landmarks in each community, where community members shared places of pride in their community. Norwood residents showed off the UDF factory, what was US Playing Card, and the Norwood Historical Society archives. Evanston shared the Flavor of Arts studio, the King Records initiative, its schools and the new Red Cross location on Dana.
Some projects from the past included learning for young and old. An entrepreneurship group, comprised of Evanston and Norwood 7th and 8th students from Hoffman-Parham School and Norwood Middle School, with the Community Building Institute, the Xavier Entrepreneurship Club, and the Xavier Entrepreneurship Center, met twice per month from February to May. Xavier entrepreneurship students taught students elements of entrepreneurship. Some ENX adult members went through an academy to learn community leadership and organization skills and received certificates upon completion. For more information on ENX, please contact Daria at 745-3263 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
