Outstanding Young Citizen Awards: East Zone


Tribune-Review, The, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


From the president

Today we look beyond the troubles often reported by Trib Total Media's newspapers and Web sites. Instead, we look to Western Pennsylvania and focus on the achievements of our youth.

The dedication of these youngsters to academics, community service and extracurricular activities is unfailing. Their youthful energies seem endless. Within these pages are some of the best, the brightest and the most giving group of individuals Western Pennsylvania has to offer.

The North Hills News Record launched the Outstanding Young Citizen Awards 16 years ago in the North Hills of Pittsburgh. Over the years, Trib Total Media has expanded the program and introduced it into the east, south and west suburbs, along with Tarentum and Greensburg. It has been very well received.

This year, parents, school administrators and friends nominated 89 students representing 18 schools. We are proud to have the opportunity to give these students the recognition they deserve.

We have in the past honored those who went on to become doctors, teachers, entrepreneurs and scores of other notable roles in the community. We expect no less to come from this fine group of people.

I would also like to congratulate the many parents, teachers, coaches and mentors who have helped guide these young people and contributed to their successes.

Those adults are often unrecognized for the many hours of loving assistance they have invested. We salute you and thank them for guaranteeing all of us a better tomorrow by encouraging the development of our youth.

Our Outstanding Young Citizens will all be honored at a banquet on Thursday evening. The event promises to be a success with keynote speaker Paul Alexander, a FSN Pittsburgh reporter for the Steelers, Pirates and Penguins.

Finally, I would like to extend my thanks to you, the reader. Without you, none of this would be possible. And I ask that if you know of any of those highlighted here, you would please take a moment to congratulate them for setting an example and working hard to ensure our future.

We believe that the treasured young citizens we honor today will be the lights of the world tomorrow.
