Person of the Week: David Stawasz and Calvin Barlow 8/19/19
For this week’s Person of the Week, we’re honoring two Rose Lake Youth Camp Lifeguards and Counselors.
During a campfire at the camp, David Stawasz and Calvin Barlow heard a shout for help out in the middle of the lake and jumped into action. — They grabbed a life jacket and paddled out to a group that flipped off a jet ski.
They were able to rescue one who was not wearing a life jacket, andhelped the rest to shore, even saving the jet ski.
The camp says, “We are so proud of them and glad that they had the training and courage to help. Rose Lake Youth Camp campers are in excellent hands with our team!”
For their quick action and life saving efforts, David Stawasz and Calvin Barlow both receive this week’s title of Person of the Week.
If you know of someone who’s working hard in their own community, creating something new in the area, or just affecting northern Michigan in their own special way and you’d like to nominate them — send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
