ABC7 Chicago Salutes: Lauren Lawson

December 31, 2011

We would like to recognize Lauren Lawson, a 22-year-old woman from Oswego. Lawson is also known as "the girl with the white board." You may have spotted her on Michigan Avenue holding her board with inspirational messages.

Lawson's college friend, Rich Fisher, brought her to our attention. He says Lauren just wants to have a positive impact on people's lives and provide words of encouragement. Lawson started this right here in Chicago, but she wants to inspire people across the country, and eventually the world.

On Saturday, January 7th, Lawson is inviting all of you to join her on Michigan Avenue. If you would like to sign up and learn more about her inspirational effort, just go to

If you know someone who should be recognized, someone who has made a difference, please send us their photos and all the information on why we should salute them on ABC 7. Upload your photos to and we'll feature them on our Saturday morning newscasts.
