Post L of the Pennsylvania Division of the Travelers Protective Association (TPA) recently held their annual Altruism Awards banquet at the Northampton Community Center. These senior students were chosen from sixteen participating schools for their unselfish devotion to the welfare of others and random acts of kindness. Each student received dinner, a certificate of appreciation, and a $100 check.  Also awarded this night was a $1,000 check, from the Deaf and Near Deaf Trust Fund, given to student, Alex Ocasio.
