Students from 14 OVAC schools in Ohio, Marshall and Belmont Counties were recipients of the Bordas & Bordas Anti-Bullying Fighting for Justice Award.
They were honored this afternoon at the Bordas & Bordas office on National Road in Wheeling.
Jamie Bordas congratulated the students and told them why this award is so important to him and his family. He says that unlike other accolades, you don’t need God-given ability to be a good person.
“My Dad started this award six years ago and he really believed that there are so many kids being recognized for being great athletes or great students but not many awards out there for recognizing kids for being kind, for doing the right thing, for treating others well,” said Bordas, managing partner at Bordas & Bordas, PLLC.
Hannah Kemp was one of the honorees. She is a student at Union Local High School, where she tries to spread positivity.
“When I see someone, I always try to make eye contact,” said Kemp. “Let them know that they’re not just another person in the hallway. I like to make people feel that they are just as good as anyone else.”
One of the perks of receiving this honor is that each student will get four tickets to a Pittsburgh Pirates game this summer. Congratulations to the award-winners!
