To the Residents of Tahoe/Truckee: Congratulations on being named an All-America City Region! You just took part in a rigorous national competition and succeeded in garnering a highly esteemed designation. Your innovative thinking and contagious enthusiasm contributed to the success of your efforts to address the grade-level reading gap. The All-America City Award (now in its 62nd year) recognizes communities across the country for civic engagement, collaboration, inclusiveness, and innovation.
Tahoe/Truckee is now a model for communities across the country. Because you successfully addressed your challenges with all three sectors working together, communities across the country will now look to you as they struggle to find solutions to their most pressing concerns. The National Civic League encourages you to continue in this spirit of collaborative problem solving.
Thank you for contributing to the betterment of communities all across our nation by tackling this process. You’ve made a worthwhile and long-term investment, not only in your own community, but in our country as well.
