Nominate A Greatest Person in Hartland

We're looking for people who impact the community in all ways-- big or small.

Hartland Patch is commited to helping keep the community informed and up to date on many topics. However, we are also committed to telling the whole story about our town and the people in it.

But to be able to tell that story we need your help.

Today, we are asking Hartland Patch readers to nominate people who make the community a better place -- even if it’s in a small way-- for our Greatest Person feature. Last month, Hartland Patch wrote about and his 26-year commitment to helping restore and maintain the .

So, who do you know around town that does great and important things? Who you consider to the embodiment of what it means to be community-minded? Do you have a friend who is always doing for others and is always the first to volunteer for any community effort? What about the person whose simple acts of random kindness seem to make Hartland a better place to live?

Even small acts can yield big results and we want to hear about them.

Nominate the person (or people) you think deserves recognition for their kindness in the comments section below. Each month Hartland Patch will profile a different one. You can nominate people who act on their own or are involved in an organization.

We are so fortunate here in Hartland to have many amazing people!  To name a few; Bill Cain, Principal at Village Elementary, Chris Anderson, Math teacher at Farms, and Rob Jellison, Science teacher at Ore Creek.  These 3 men consistently go way above and far beyond what might be expected of them.  They are role models and mentors both professionally and personally.

Bill Cain is an icon in the community.  He lives and works in Hartland and helps facilitate just about every community event, from announcing at the Memorial Day parade, to working at swim meets and football games, assembling and delivering holiday baskets, and participating in anything and everything that happens at his school.  Bill is the first one in the door and the last one out every single day.  Bill is not familiar with the words "no," or "I can't."  He is ALWAYS willing to be there for anyone in the community. Chris Anderson is an amazing role model as a teacher and a person.  He teaches math, tutors before and after school, runs the student stock club, plays sports on the playground with students every single day, and recently broke hist leg doing so!  He also runs sports programs and math classes in the summer.  He never stops giving of himself. Rob Jellison is one of the most beloved teachers in Hartland.  Rob is not only a great teacher, he also created and runs the Hartland Youth Outdoors Club (HYOC), teaching and coaching archery for hundreds of students each year and consistently pulling together national champions on every level.  In addition, Rob is a key facilitator in the Challenge Day program at Ore Creek and heads up the Be the Change Club, as well as coaching girls basketball and running summer outdoor camps for students.  He always makes Hartland kids his priority.

I have another one. Megan Levoska died on Sunday. She was a sweet lady who always had a smile on her face. She taught her girls to have the best manners just like her. She was always happy and wanted to hang out with every lady she knew. I am a friend of her daughters so I know a lot. Whenever there was a spill or a vase broke she looked at it in a positive way. "It's fine. I can do with a new one anyways." Or she would say "Some paper towel will clean that up." Megan Levoska will be dearly missed.
