Keith Nohava and Will Howard are Making a Difference

Northfield Healthy Community Initiative (HCI) recently recognized Keith Nohava and Will Howard, custodians at Greenvale Park Elementary School, with the June 2016 “Making a Difference” Award.

The award is given out monthly to community members or organizations that help to make Northfield an even better place for young people.

Keith and Will were already working incredibly hard as elementary school custodians, yet since the start of the Greenvale Park Community School in the fall of 2014, their jobs have taken on a new meaning.

“The new community school model has definitely increased the workload of the custodians, and even changed their entire routine,” said Laura Berdahl, Greenvale Park Community School co-coordinator.

Keith and Will have been endlessly flexible while they work around afterschool programming, along with a steady stream of families and students on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.

“Will’s work is frequently interrupted in the evenings while he tends to plenty of unplanned mishaps and questions,” said Berdahl. “He switches his direction with an easy-going style, and is always willing to step forward to assist anyone who needs it.”

Additionally, each year when the first grade classrooms begin teaching their science units, Will comes in to the school during the day to share his butterfly and rock collections.

“Keith is a patient, steady presence during the day and you’ll often find him chatting with a student while he does his work,” said Berdahl. “He puts the needs of the students first, and puts his own convenience last.”

Greenvale Park staff and students are fortunate to have Keith and Will maintaining their building; a big part of the success of the Community School can be attributed to the hard work of these two employees.

The Northfield Healthy Community Initiative and the Northfield News present the Making a Difference Award cooperatively. If you know an individual or group that you would like to nominate for this award, visit for nomination guidelines and the easy-to-complete application, or find HCI on Facebook. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and are selected by a review team of HCI board members and local youth.

St. Olaf names chief marketing officer

St. Olaf College - Fri, 06/24/2016 - 11:46am

St. Olaf College Vice President for Enrollment and College Relations Michael Kyle ’85 has announced the appointment of Katie Warren ’95 as its first chief marketing officer.

Warren, who is currently president and director of strategy at the Minneapolis-based marketing services agency Gabriel deGroodBendt (GdB), will begin at St. Olaf July 5.

Warren has spent the past 16 years leading brand strategy, innovation, and marketing communications plans in both the advertising and retail industries.

Prior to joining GdB, she was vice president of brand marketing at SuperValu, where she led banner brand marketing and advertising, private brands marketing, health and wellness marketing, and strategic planning. She also worked at Campbell-Mithun and Br&nd Innovators, assisting clients like Coca-Cola, General Mills, and Land O’Lakes.

“Katie is strategic, accomplished, and down-to-earth,” Kyle says. “The experience she brings will drive stronger integration across campus, enabling the group she leads to provide effective, authentic, and compelling communications.”

This new role at the college is intended to strategically elevate the role of marketing in the college’s communications plan to increase awareness and visibility of the college and support the college’s strategic plan.

“St. Olaf has long had a place in my heart and I’m thrilled with the opportunity to leverage my skills and experience to take the St. Olaf brand to the next level,” Warren says.

Warren holds a bachelor’s degree from St. Olaf, where she majored in English, and a master of marketing communications certificate from the University of St. Thomas.
