Each year, the Jefferson Awards for Public Service looks for the “unsung heroes,” the selfless people who make the world a better place through volunteering and community service efforts.
The Center for Community Action and Research is happy to announce that six Pace individuals have been selected to receive Jefferson Awards Bronze Medals for 2010-2011. They are: Michael Boyle (student), John Cronin (staff), Donald Doernberg (faculty), Naphtalie Librun (student), Yvonne Rafferty (faculty), and Hannah Tall (student). Additionally, John Cronin, the Pace Academy’s Senior Fellow in Environmental Affairs, was selected to represent Pace at the Jefferson Awards National Ceremonies in Washington, DC, to compete for a Gold Medal Award.
Known as the “Nobel Prize for public service,” the Jefferson Awards recognize and honor ordinary people who do extraordinary things in their communities.
