Kevin Thesing awarded for philanthropy


If philanthropy is all about giving — to good causes and to one’s community — then Kevin Thesing is more than deserving of the Brainerd Lakes Area Community Foundation’s 2012 Award in Philanthropy.

The co-owner of Lakes Area Printing has been involved in a host of community projects and has always managed to keep a smile on his face no matter road blocks might be encountered along the way.

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with various duties since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently Director of Audience Development. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work. I'm fortunate to have made many friends, both co-workers and customers.
