The award and event on April 26 at the Pegasus Restaurant in Coxsackie recognized the "best of the best" in our local high schools; spotlighting those students and educators that demonstrate leadership and volunteerism in their respective school, community and/or YMCA.

Student and educator criteria include demonstrating leadership and dedication in service to their schools, communities and/or the YMCA. The teacher/student must have a character that embraces the values of the YMCA: Caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
