Service Awards 2012

Three Service Awards were awarded and two were presented by Christine Ziemba.

Our Award Recipients were NATIVITY MIGUEL MIDDLE SCHOOL OF BUFFALO, The SUMMER INSTITUTE FOR HUMAN RIGHTS and the LANCASTER/DEPEW GIRLS and BOYS CLUB.

 The NATIVITY MIGUEL MIDDLE SCHOOL OF BUFFALO’s mission is to provide motivated, low-income students with the opportunity to graduate from high school in a setting that will prepare them for college. This is accomplished through a strong middle-school program that includes skilled and dedicated teachers, extended school days and school year, small, single-gender classes and ongoing support through high school graduation.  Nancy Langer, the President, and students Aminah Bell and Kaylee Wilcox joined us in accepting their award.

  

 

 

THE SUMMER INSTITUTE FOR HUMAN RIGHTS is now in its fifth year.  It is designed for students who are interested in politics, history, international relations, or the social sciences.  It provides its participants with the opportunity to hear human rights experts, historians, and advocates, as well as take part in hands-on activities, discussions, and field trips, all to inspire its students to have a positive impact on the world.  Aminah and Kaylee were given scholarships to the summer institute by Drew Beiter.  The girls were very excited.

Director, Drew Beiter, accepted our award.  He is pictured below with Christine Ziemba.
