Mike Naylor Recognized As ‘Someone Special Volunteer’

It was an easy choice for Headwaters to nominate Mike Naylor as this year’s Someone Special Volunteer. 

The Someone Special program – sponsored by the United Way, the Bemidji Pioneer, Paul Bunyan Broadcasting and Ken K. Thompson – has been recognizing volunteers in the Bemidji Area for 34 years and offers an opportunity for organizations in the community to thank our special volunteers. Mike was featured in the Saturday June 15th edition of the Bemidji Pioneer, alongside Jeri Francis of the Bemidji Early Childhood Collective.

For the past 7 years, Mike has been the go-to sound guy for First Fridays Open Mic. He comes early to set up, makes sure everyone sounds good throughout the evening, and is the last one to leave at the end of the night. Mike even shares his own considerable talents on the stage from time to time. He is also a Headwaters board member and has provided sound and tech training to volunteers and staff. Volunteers like Mike are ‘instrumental’ to making Bemidji a great place to live. 

Thanks Mike – your contributions help make Headwaters Music & Arts a great place work and play!
