BROWNSVILLE — Members of Saint Joseph Academy and local leaders gathered on Tuesday to celebrate the individuals who standout in our community.
The President's Distinguished Community Service Award is the highest and most prestigious award presented by the school. It is given to those individuals who've shown a commitment to improving the quality of lives for others. Two of this year's recipients, the honorable Federico Pena and Mrs. Mellena Conner, said the award meant a lot to them.
A student run organization at the school, known as "Teens Helping Kids", also received an award for community involvement and charity work.
