Have you ever had a time when things were just moving along, nothing special, then out of the blue, something different happened, something extraordinary? Maybe it was something small but unexpected. Maybe it was bigger than that. But maybe it was a person who struck you as being so
noteworthy that you still remember him or her to this day. That’s how we feel about the nominees and winners of our Extraordinary Teens Awards. These are positive young people who are making their mark at an early age, people who also make an impact and a lasting impression. We celebrated these fine folks at our event in May. Read all about them in this month’s feature article.
Also in this issue, we have an extraordinary nonprofit, The OPHELIA Foundation, making a difference in the lives of young people and more through generous scholarships and strategic partnerships. Learn about the organization’s generosity and ingenuity in Giving Back. Then, offer the younger ones an opportunity to explore the extraordinary world of anime at the public library. Not sure what anime is? Read all about the
anime club in Destinations. In Local Flavor, we introduce you to Chef Mike Cordero of Rockwood. He’s had extraordinary success in the restaurant business, and you’ll learn why in this article. There’s more, too, including a Taking Care of Business piece that explains how purpose-driven marketing is making a difference in our local businesses and communities. The results have been, well, extraordinary.
As always, we hope you enjoy this issue of Prince William Living magazine. Be sure to share it with friends and family. Because, why keep the extraordinary to yourself?
All the best,
