The Josh Sumner Sr. Unsung Hero Award provides public recognition to ordinary citizens who voluntarily contribute their time, effort, and skills to young people in New Rochelle in extraordinary ways.
Josh Sumner was an individual that embodied the above qualities. Quietly, he gave his time and his heart to uplifting and building the self-esteem of all children in New Rochelle. He never sought praise, recognition, or rewards for his deeds. He devoted countless hours to enhance the lives of our youth. He was the embodiment of community pride and values.
The Unsung Hero Award honors adult volunteers who often go unnoticed in the community (they hold no titles), but who make a vital contribution to improving the quality of life of young people in New Rochelle. The goal of this award is to acknowledge the efforts of the people who give their time, effort, and skills to our youth, with no expectation of payment or reward.
