Prince William SPCA Wins Healthy Communities Healthy Youth Council (HCHY) Local Hero Award
Prince William SPCA was selected as a recipient of Healthy Communities Healthy Youth Council (HCHY) Local Hero Award on Jan. 10, 2019. The award recognized the organization’s work on the Little Free Library Program with Prince William County Schools. Olympic Gold Medalist and local hero Ali Krieger presented the awards and was the keynote speaker at the awards ceremony. Winners were selected for inspiring and enduring contributions through school and community activities. Recipients came from across many sectors of our community—county and state government, School Division, businesses, non-profits, individuals, and organizations. The Local Heroes exemplify how to support and build leadership skills and self-awareness in our youth so that they might one day be leaders themselves—and serve their communities as role models for those who come after. In 2018, Prince William SPCA sponsored Little Free Libraries that were constructed at 19 elementary schools and one middle school. The libraries are a free community resource that help promote humane education and encourage reading.
