That message was included in the 2012 Star Partners Awards on March 6 at Harrah’s North Kansas City, where Gladstone’s NAPA was one of eight winners of the annual awards. The awards seek to recognize the best examples of school-business partnerships in the Northland and are an effort of the Northland Education and Business Alliance — an affiliate of the Clay County Economic Development Council. CONTRIBUTED PHOTO NAPA has partnered with the school district’s auto tech program Bill Young, president of Citizen’s Bank, presents Joseph Chadwick, manager of Gladstone’s NAPA Auto Parts, with a 2012 Star Partners Award.

After being out of the country on the first day of filing for state office last month, Carol Suter filed her candidacy for Missouri House District 15 on Friday, March 9. She joins Jon Carpenter and Shon Adamson on the Democratic primary ballot. The winner of the Aug. 7 vote is expected to face Republican Kevin Corlew in the general election in November. Corlew is the only candidate so far in his party’s primary in District 15, which includes Gladstone, part of Kansas City North and the Oaks villages. Candidates have until March 28 to file for House seats. There is no incumbent in District 15 because it is a newly created district.
