William G. Hansen
Youth of the Year Award
Earlier this year, the Lions Club solicited nominations of high school students who live in Haddonfield and have demonstrated empathy, leadership, and a strong record of volunteering to be considered for the William G. Hansen Youth of the Year Award.
In early April, the Youth of the Year Committee, comprised of Lions Club members Deb Nussbaum, Ellen Ragone, Carole Freynik, and Joyce Albrecht, selected three students to be honored with plaques and monetary prizes at the Lions Club meeting on March 19th.
But, because of the COVI19 quarantine, that meeting – and all Club activities since that time – was postponed or canceled, so the winners did not receive their plaques and checks until Friday, May 22nd.
Congratulations to the three top winners, Stella DeMarco, Charlotte George, and Elliot Ryan. The Lions Club also recognized four additional students: Max Cass, Kyle Dailey, Carly Griffin, and Rebekah Vielehr.
