DeLissio announces 2018-19 Peer to Peer, Unsung Hero awards

PHILADELPHIA, June 6 – State Rep. Pamela A. DeLissio, D-Montgomery/Phila., honored area students with Peer to Peer and Unsung Hero awards for the 2018-19 school year.

The Peer to Peer award recognizes students who, through established programs or on their own, help other students through friendships, tutoring, or mentoring.

The Unsung Hero Award recognizes students whose good deeds and actions make a difference in their school or community.

These honors are awarded annually to graduating students who reside in the 194th Legislative District. Students are nominated by teachers, counselors and other staff members.

“Every year it is an honor and pleasure to identify and recognize student excellence in the classroom, in leadership, in citizenship, and in any type of behavior making a positive impact in our community,” DeLissio said. “My congratulations go to these young men and women for their compassion, their determination, their willingness to help even without expectation or the promise of recognition. These students make our community a better place and inspire hope for our future.”
