Tonight at a banquet at Stoney Creek Inn, the winners of the Columbia Daily Tribune’s Hero Awards were announced. RBRO was nominated for our work with The Intersection and was in the Youth Volunteer category along with Boy Scouts Troop 706, Mary Cleek, Madison Falcone and Cierra L. Nelson. The five core leaders for the Intersection, Stephen Turban, David Wang, Rasheeq Nizam, Nomin Jagdagdorj and Aniqa Rahman, were all able to attend along with our teacher sponsor, Mrs. Weaver. After a nail-biting evening, RBRO was announced as the winner for the Youth Volunteer category. A $400 prize will be donated to the Intersection. We were extremely honored to be nominated for this award and even more honored when we won amongst such worthy competition. When it comes to giving back to the community, however, we really are all winners.
