The 19th annual S.T.A.R.R. and Sumner/Bonney Lake Communities for Familes Coalition Community Summit is scheduled for March 15 at Calvary Community Church in Sumner.

This year’s event is themed “The Heart of the Matter” and will feature a keynoter address from Sumner High School Leadership Teacher John Norlin.

The event gets started at 3 p.m. with the pre-summit session “The Heart of the Matter – Health as a Priority” featuring Lauren Wilson and the PEP Grant All-Stars. The session will focus on how movement and fitness can prevent health risks.

From 5 to 6 p.m., there will be a switch to smaller, breakout groups with topics like transportation, healthy living, community block watch programs, affordable housing and more.

Members of the Bonney Lake and Sumner city staff will be on hand for the breakout sessions.

At 6 p.m. the dinner begins, complete with the awarding of the Unsung Hero Awards and the keynote from Norlin. Norlin presently serves as Sumner High’s ASB advisor and Leadership teacher. He holds a Master’s Degree in organizational leadership with a servant-leadership focus, from Gonzaga University and a Bachelor’s Degree in secondary education from Eastern Washington University

The idea behind the awards is to recognize the many individuals and groups that give of their time and talent to help others and make both small and large contributions to communities within the Sumner School District. Their contributions do not go unnoticed, be it within their organization, school, or community they serve in or by the individuals they impact along the way. For many, it is their life’s work, but because these unsung heroes are often behind the scenes, the extent of how they impact others is not always known.

The Community Impact/Unsung Heroes Awards seek to recognize these individuals. Nominations for the awards were accepted through February.

Calvary Community Church is located at 15116 Gary St., Sumner.
