Sen. Libous Community Service Awards
Senator Tom Libous, Broome-Tioga BOCES and WBNG-TV are honoring 30 high school seniors from Broome, Tioga and Chenango counties for their community service,
The 30 were honored with the 2015 Student Community Service Award, a partnership of Broome-Tioga BOCES, Sen. Tom Libous and WBNG-TV.
"Community service is not about dollars and cents, it’s about time,” Libous said. “It’s about caring and about smiles and hugs and knowing we've helped someone. It's about giving instead of taking. It's something money can't buy."
The activities ranged from volunteering at community events and for fund drives, helping at nursing homes and hospitals, renovating park facilities and a mission trip to Kenya.
“Join me in honoring this young people,” Libous said. “They’ve learned early what it takes to make a community great, and they’re an example for everyone.”.
