The 62nd Community Council honored the best and brightest youth volunteers and graduating students in elementary, middle and high school at the St. Finbar Community Center on June 16, bestowing each one the 2015 Michael J. Ferraro award.
The tribute recognizes young do-gooders who have shown their own sense of “community spirit.” Its namesake was one of the first council presidents and one who exemplified community service, said current president Louis Tromboli.
As in past years the recipients were chosen not by the 62nd Precinct, but by their peers, teachers and school principals impressed by their community involvement at such a young age.
Standing O is so impressed that these do-gooding students can add a Standing O to their lists of accomplishments!
