Viewpoint: Great achievements require work, dedication
This week I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the "Athena Awards" banquet at the Prom Center in Oakdale. This is an annual event to recognize and honor young women in the St. Paul area for outstanding athletic achievements.
I have attended each year and always walk out the door with a renewed sense of pride in the capabilities of our young people.
Forty-one young women were recognized, one from each high school in the greater St. Paul area.
