Posted: October 16, 2012 - 7:20pm

Taylor Stevenson of Baxter was chosen as one of the Ten Outstanding Young Minnesotans (TOYM) by the Minnesota Jaycees. Stevenson is the DFL candidate for Senate District 10.

For more than 50 years, the TOYM event has been a program which the Minnesota Jaycees, in partnership with their local chapters, rewards young men and women who have shown dedicated service to their community, demonstrated outstanding leadership, or have achieved excellence in their field of work/study.

The ceremony and reception will be held Dec. 1, at the Doubletree by Hilton in Saint Louis Park. Reception will include a dinner and speeches from all honorees.

“This is a great honor, and I am very humbled to have been chosen,” Stevenson said in a statement. “I have been working very hard for this area, and to be in the company of these other great Minnesotans is an amazing feeling.”

Stevenson has been an active member of Building Bridges, Poverty Bound, Bridges of Hope, and the Minnesota Farmers Union. He also spearheaded the “Yes, Yes” campaign to help area public schools.
