Bobby Valcin, site coordinator at JFK Middle School, is one of the five winners of the Community In Schools (CIS) Unsung Heroes Award.
This award celebrates the amazingly dedicated individuals who bring to life CIS’ core values exemplified by personalism, coordination, accountability, persistence, equality, and by connecting with children every day to prove that people and their unique gift of building life-long relationships transform lives.
The award will be presented at an event to be held in Washington D.C. this fall. The winners will receive a monetary stipend.
“Since Bobby came to work for Communities In Schools Palm Beach County Inc., I knew I had hired a very special person. He participated in many special projects and initiatives including the coordination of the Haiti Disaster Recovery efforts after the devastating earthquake of January 12, 2010, the CISPBC/United Way grant for school supplies drive, the Superintendent’s Graduation and Suspension Reduction Task Force Initiatives, etc.” said Margaret Bagley, the Executive Director of Communities In School of Palm Beach County, Inc., in a letter of nomination.
“We are thrilled and honored to offer Bobby this award for being a shining example to others in our network, as well as to the children of our nation. His hard work and commitment help students stay in school and prepare for life,” say Gary Chapman, the Executive Vice President of the CIS’ National Network.
