BUFFALO, NY, USA, April 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Isabelle Vladoiu, from Buffalo, New York, was one of six President’s Volunteer Service Awardees at the Youth for Human Rights North American Regional Summit this week. She received the President’s Volunteer Service Award and Gold Medal at an event in the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington, DC. The President’s Volunteer Service Award is a tremendous distinction awarded each year to American citizens and residents, and honors those who have demonstrated commitment and set examples in the community. The gold medal is awarded to those individuals who have volunteered more than 500 service hours within a 12-month period.
Ms. Vladoiu has been acknowledged for her work also by the Governor of NY Andrew Cuomo, the NY Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, and Congressman Brian Higgins.
The awards were presented during a three day event marking The 1st Annual Youth for Human Rights North American Regional Summit and The 15th Annual Youth for Human Rights World Educational Tour Briefing. Radio personality Kerri Kasem (daughter of America’s Top 40 Casey Kasem) MC’ed the event and urged those attending to continue to teach human rights in schools. She recounted the violations of human rights she and her siblings experienced when her father was dying and kept from visiting his family and friends.
