Asset Builder of the Month: February 2007


March 09, 2007

Ketchikan, Alaska - Some wonderful "Asset Builders" in Ketchikan work discreetly and prefer to remain anonymous and out of the limelight. Such is the case with PATCHWorks' selected "Asset Builder" for February.

This adult is dedicated to providing opportunities for youth to become, and stay, physically fit by playing basketball. The nominator wrote that her nominee "works tirelessly to organize opportunities for youth of all ages to play basketball" and that by doing so young people "learn the meaning of good sportsmanship." The nominator also wrote that the young basketball players become more involved in the community by taking part in service projects and fundraisers with their team.

This asset builder's work with youth builds the assets of Positive Adult Role Models, Empowerment, and Providing Service to Others, as well as Responsibility and Integrity. Thank you to our February Asset Builder of the Month, for this positive influence on young people.

If you would like to nominate an organization or person for the Asset Builder of the Month program, please call the PATCHWorks office at 225-4350, or email us at to request a nomination form. Thank you for helping us to recognize and honor Ketchikan's awesome asset builders!
