Six high school students were honored by their Wilmette faith communities at the second annual North Shore Interfaith Leadership Award event held April 10 at the Bahá’í House of Worship. The honorees were selected by their congregational leaders and were chosen for their excellence in servant leadership, active participation in their community of faith and their passion for service to others locally, nationally or globally.
Youth from the Bahá’í Friends (Nasreen Rahmani), Beth Hillel Congregation Bnai Emunah (Eliana Fisher), Congregation Sukkat Shalom (Laren Stremmel), First Presbyterian Church of Wilmette (Christian Alexander), The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Lucy Myers) and Trinity United Methodist Church (Catherine Jameson) spoke passionately about serving in faith. They were presented with Hearing the Call Across Traditions: Readings on Faith and Service, and a certificate of recognition. The event featured interfaith music and readings presented by members of Wilmette Interfaith Religious Leaders, the sponsors of the event.
