Congratulations to North Park’s very own Lankesh Patel for winning first prize in the 2013 Change The View Video Contest! This past Tuesday May 7th, he was recognized at an event held at the HJA Brown Education Center to launch Children’s Mental Health week. Children’s Minister Teresa Piruzza personally presented Lankesh with his prize and certificate to a roaring standing ovation! Well done Lankesh! We’re proud of you!
