Hello! West Hartford invites students from Conard and Hall,  in 11th and 12th grade, to submit essays for The Dr. Karen L. List Global Ambassador Award.

by Joy Taylor

This honor is given to students who promote and embrace the West Hartford global community through service, action or demonstration.  The award is named in honor of Dr. Karen List who was instrumental in West Hartford’s enormous strides toward awareness, inclusiveness and celebration of our diverse community. 

Applications are available in the high school guidance offices, or from this Award Link. Please consider nominating a deserving student or self-nominate. Essay deadline is March 31st.

The two students would be able to show how they connect to the town’s diverse cultures and/or share their cultural heritage.

The award is named in honor of Dr. Karen List who first sponsored a West Hartford Community Conversation in 2010. From that event, the town has made enormous strides toward awareness, inclusiveness and celebration of our diverse community. Dr. List has given time and energy to multiple initiatives that have spawned off this event.

Hello! West Hartford recognizes the future depends on students continuing to welcome other cultures and embrace the global community we live in. This award distinction will be decided by the Hello! West Hartford board through applications from students with teacher, peer or community member references.

The honorees will be contacted on April 15th and awarded on April 24th at the Hello! West Hartford Cultural Celebration. Please recommend and encourage any student you feel is deserving. (students can be self-nominated). Contact Bepsie Perry for questions [email protected] Email entry to [email protected] with subject Karen L. List Global Ambassador Award.
