Park Forest Commission Announces Recipients Of Good Egg Award

PARK FOREST, IL–(ENEWSPF)– The Park Forest Commission on Human Relations will present the 2008 Good Egg Award to Danielle Gladstone of Park Forest and Sharon Minster of Flossmoor.

The Good Egg Award recognizes leadership and community service that has had a significant impact on fostering inter-group relations and equal opportunity in the South Suburbs. The first award was bestowed in 1973, on the late Harry Teshima, who laid the groundwork that ultimately attracted the first African American residents of Park Forest.

Like Teshima, the 2008 awardees have enthusiastically embraced the ideas of diversity and have made an extraordinary commitment to improving the quality of life in their communities through human relations and human rights advocacy.

The Good Egg Awards will be presented to the recipients on Monday July 21st during a ceremony in their honor at Village Hall at 7:00pm. The public is invited to attend.

Community Relations Coordinator Crescent Muhammad praised the recipients, "The Village of Park Forest is proud to be a community comprised of individuals from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and interests who are relentless in their pursuit to make Park Forest and the South Suburbs an even better place to live."
