Assembly Minority Leader Will Barclay (R,C-Pulaski) awarded 25 area high school students from 10 school districts with the Community Service Youth Recognition Award. This award recognizes outstanding high school students who volunteer and work tirelessly to serve and enrich communities throughout the 120th Assembly District. Nominations were sought through local school districts for student leadership and community service contributions.

Your volunteerism serves as an example of generosity, selflessness, and hard work. Whether it’s lending a helping hand at your local food pantry, mentoring other students or coaching youth sports, your kindness goes a long way and inspires others to do the same,” said Leader Barclay.
