The 2020 Upper Dublin Medals program was a show stopper! An estimated 170 viewers tuned in to enjoy the virtual celebration of this 36th annual prestigious and unique program, prudently taped prior to the big reveal on June 14.
The medal recipients and presenters were stellar, with meaningful commentary and gracious acceptance remarks. The event honored the 2020 recipients: Meg Place, educator, Jarrettown principal; Inter-Faith Housing Alliance, non-profit group; Ronald Feldman, posthumously, citizen; and student finalists Amy Gong and Annie Cheng. All student nominees, previous medal winners, and event sponsors were recognized as well.
The renowned triumphs of the medalists are clearly models for character development, academic and professional achievement, volunteer service, and commitment throughout the Upper Dublin community
The program opened with a special treat by the Lovely Day Social Distance Club, which includes harmonious vocal and instrumental performances by Upper Dublin staff, parents, students and graduates, coordinated by teacher Sean Kennedy, Sandy Run Middle School.
Deepest appreciation to event supporters: Boles, Smyth Associates; Stantec; Sal Paone Builders; Ambler Flower Shop, Kirkland Printing, and No Bare Walls Framing Studio.
