Members in Post Q in Mahanoy City were proud to keep with the tradition of honoring graduating high school students. The Altruism Award is given annually to students who give of their time and talents unselfishly to help others. Ten recipients received a plaque and $200, sponsored by Post Q, the Snayberger Memorial Foundation, and the Edwin and Dolores Miller Charitable Foundation. This year’s recipients were Daniel Morrow, Isabella Kramer, Emily Kayes, Sara Motley, Samuel Sterns, Genevieve Lightstone, Kaleigh Sibbert, Ian Tolarick, Victoria Chernesky, and Frances Kabana. These awards are usually given during a special presentation; however, due to the Coronavirus this was not the case again this year.
