Return to event list.
Jake, the son of Stephen and Michelle LeDoux, is completing his sophomore year at Beaver River Central School. Jake is being recognized for his enthusiasm in all of his actions and endeavors. He willingly takes on tasks before being asked, volunteers for many organizations and encourages his peers to do the same. He has been elected to the Order of the Arrow by his fellow Boy Scouts and is working towards his Eagle Badge. Jake is also active on the family farm as well as taking on many leadership activities in FFA, the community and school.
Dorrie and husband Bruce reside off Route 812 beside the Beaver River. Her nominators note her work within the community beginning as a teenager and continuing through the present: Church, National Honor Society, teaching, chaperoning, Relay for Life Teams, DKG Society for Women Educators, Croghan Food Pantry, Lion’s spaghetti suppers, Domestic Violence Hotline and many other leadership roles. If it needs to be done, Dorrie will see that it gets done.
