Senator Persaud's SD-Power19 recognized outstanding individuals and organizations for their service in their local communities
Senator Roxanne J. Persaud gathered the community on Tuesday, June 26, for the SD-Power19 event, a celebration to recognize 19 'unsung heroes' for their invaluable and dedicated contributions to many different service areas in Senate District 19. A total of 19 individuals and organizations were honored with New York State Senate Proclamations.
During the event, awards were presented in a wide range of categories including law enforcement, the clergy, business, community empowerment, health care and youth community service.
While the SD-Power19 event was a dedication to the entire community, it was particularly important to Senator Persaud to also acknowledge the contributions of the youth and to recognize them as valued assets to society.
The NYPD Explorers, a program that provides young men and women with an introduction to a career in law enforcement or in the field of criminal justice, were especially moved that such an honor was bestowed upon them.
