They don’t have capes or secret identities. They can’t leap tall buildings or fly. But their hard work and unrelenting passion to help others gives them the power to save the lives of thousands of children across America every day. By providing encouragement, academic support and community resources, these men and women, along with 5,000 other staff members and more than 50,000 volunteers, are our nation’s true heroes. They’re Communities In Schools’ Unsung Heroes.
Meet the six Communities In Schools site coordinators from around the U.S. who were recognized for their outstanding contributions with the 2011 Communities in Schools Unsung Heroes award–including Communities In Schools of Seattle’s own Xaila Lewis from Rainier Beach High School!
