Mayor Luke Ravenstahl has been chosen as one of four "Outstanding Young Pennsylvanians" by the Junior Chamber International Pennsylvania (PA Jaycees). The Mayor will be honored at the 61st Annual Outstanding Young Pennsylvanian Awards Banquet, during the Jaycees' 3rd quarter board meeting, on Saturday, November 8, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Harrisburg East. The Mayor is unable to attend due to the recent birth of his son.
The Outstanding Young Pennsylvanian Awards honor young people from around the Commonwealth who excel in their chosen field, and for their willingness to go above and beyond in their service to humanity. Each winner is selected on the basis of achievement or contribution in any three of the following areas: personal improvement of accomplishment; financial success and economic innovation; social improvement to major contemporary problems; philanthropic contribution or voluntary service; politics or government service; scientific or technological contributions; legal reform; cultural achievement; academic leadership or accomplishment; moral and religious leadership; success in the influence of public opinion (news media and other means); and any other important contributions to community, state or nation, at the discretion of the judges.
In addition to the Mayor, the other individuals to receive this prestigious award are the Reverend Timothy J. Keilley from Gettysburg, Schuylkill Haven Police Chief Jeff Walcott, and Anne Marie Scheeler, a teacher from York. State Representative Scott Perry will be the Keynote Speaker.
