Honor roll recipients
In January, the District 10 Como Community Council accepted nominations for the 2021 Como Neighborhood Honor Roll. Board members selected the winners and honored them at the February board meeting.
Congratulations to 2021 honorees Rick and Kathy Zieman, Melissa Liu and Deepa Nirmal, and Tseganesh Selameab and Matthew Cain.
The annual honor roll recognizes everyday residents and organizations who make a sustained and lasting impact in their neighborhood. Although the city of St. Paul has paused its official support of the honor roll program, District 10 has chosen to continue celebrating outstanding community members, whose names will be added to the permanent plaque in the District 10 office.
