Sara Powers used the ability to compromise as the theme for her award-winning Master’s thesis project at the University of Minnesota. Powers, an architecture student, used her project as a proposal for the Teweles and Brandeis Granary building to be renovated at its former site, combining the efforts of those trying to save the building with those wishing to develop the waterfront property. Powers describes her project as a community center that could facilitate future growth.
Powers won the Faculty Choice award for having one of the top thesis projects in her program. Powers was a Sturgeon Bay High School Graduate in the Class of 2011.
