SCOPE Annual Celebration and Boundary Crosser Award
Join us as we celebrate our 2015 Boundary Crosser award winner! A Boundary Crosser is a person who connects people across boundary lines that traditionally divide community. They are citizen leaders who extend past their familiar territory, whether that’s government, non-profits, business, ethnic groups, religion, or neighborhoods to become community builders. Be a part of the celebration as we honor Carolyn Johnson at Michael’s on East. Learn more at scopexcel.org.
