Local Advocate Jen Troska Wins MoorHeart Award

Post Date:03/11/2024 7:00 pm

Congratulations to Jen Troska! On March 11, 2024, the Moorhead City Council and Mayor Shelly Carlson presented her with the MoorHeart award.

The MoorHeart selection committee chose to recognize Jen Troska and her outstanding contributions to the Moorhead community especially through her work to establish an Inclusive playground in Moorhead. 

Jen has been an advocate for making the Moorhead community accessible for everyone. Jen serves as the Vice Chair of the Human Rights Commission where her passion and unwavering commitment to human rights can shine. Jen’s nomination includes the following statement:

“Jen’s tireless efforts have significantly impacted the lives of Moorhead residents, particularly in her work towards establishing an Inclusive Playground—a project that reflects her commitment to creating spaces where everyone, regardless of ability, can thrive. Jen has been instrumental in making the vision of an Inclusive Playground a reality. Her advocacy is not limited to discussions as she takes concrete actions to ensure that the voices of those often marginalized are heard and considered in community development. Jen's inclusive mindset and compassionate approach make her an inspiration to others and a driving force for positive change.”

The City of Moorhead thanks Jen for her dedication to building a community that values diversity, equality, and inclusivity. Her hard work is valued and makes Moorhead a better place.

The MoorHeart award is an opportunity to recognize individuals who go above and beyond to demonstrate community within our City by their actions and service. A team of volunteers from city boards and commissions selects award recipients. The MoorHeart award is commemorated with a piece of art commissioned from local artist Dennis Krull especially for this purpose.

It's easy to nominate individuals/organizations for the MoorHeart award. Contributions large and small are worthy of nomination!
