Molina Honored for Neighborhood Contributions


One of the first items of business during the Greenwood City Council meeting on Monday, January 6, was the recognition of a young man, Xander Molina, 11, for his outstanding efforts and conduct.

“He is an asset to his community, his neighborhood and the City of Greenwood…we appreciate everything you do,” stated Mayor Doug Kinslow. Adding that Molina takes pride in caring for both his, and his grandmother’s yard.

Kinslow praised Molina for his meticulously manicured lawn, landscaping and his Christmas light display.

“If we could all be like this, we would be much better off,” shared Kinslow. Molina was then awarded a plaque on behalf of the city, declaring January 6, 2020 as Xander Molina Day. Additionally, Molina was presented a pin with the City of Greenwood’s motto, “Feels Like Home,” and a key to the city. Kinslow concluded that the reason Greenwood feels like home to so many is because of people like Molina. “Doing for others, especially those who can’t, is very commendable.”

Congratulations to Molina and to his parents on this outstanding honor!
