2011-2012 Annual Report: Dawn Wilson
Dawn Wilson is a resident of Brightmoor, a community builder, and a clown. Yup, a clown. She has always loved to make kids smile. She realized she could do that not just by clowning, but by improving her neighborhood for children. So she joined the Brightmoor Alliance, where she's a board member, and the resident panel of the Community Connections small grants program, which has doled out more than $2 million in small grants to grassroots neighborhood groups. She's one of our 10 heroes who is Tenacious for the D!
