Sarah Jang and Daniel T. Kim, members of the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra, were recently presented with the award.
Two Cherry Hill residents who are members of the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra were among the recipients of the 2016 Good Citizenship Award from the Union League of Philadelphia’s Youth Work Foundation.
Sarah Jang, a 16-year-old violist, and Daniel T. Kim, a 17-year-old cellist, were the recipients. The awards recognize the accomplishments of outstanding young citizens who participate in the Union League’s Youth Work Day Program. There were presented with the awards during the Youth Work Foundation’s annual Good Citizenship Award Dinner.
“While pursuing their musical education taught by our outstanding staff, the PYO students develop life skills that will serve them well into the future,” said president and music director Louis Scaglione. “We are very proud that a dozen of our remarkable young people have been recognized as Good Citizens and how well they represent our organization in all of their endeavors.”
The Youth Work Foundation’s programs recognize, educate, and motivate high school students who demonstrate the attributes of a good citizen. Over the past 70 years, the Good Citizenship Award has been presented to nearly 17,000 young people. This year, there were about 300 people recognized at the dinner.
