The annual Communities In Schools Unsung Heroes Award is presented to site coordinators who demonstrate an unwavering commitment to students most in need of integrated services. With acts of love and transformation, these Unsung Heroes are the best in the country at what they do.

Out of a national network including nearly 200 affiliates and 2,400 schools, we are proud to have two Washington representatives in the spotlight this year: Dalisha Phillips, CIS of Seattle, and Leah Livingston, CIS of Lakewood.
