What are the Widener University High School Leadership Awards?
WCAU-TV NBC10 and Widener University have partnered once again to give principals in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware the opportunity to acknowledge and honor the region's best and brightest future leaders whom consistently:
- Stand up for what is right.
- Find ways to address a wrong.
- Make a difference in a significant way within their community.
As NBC10's Tracy Davidson said, these young leaders are "dreamers, doers, innovators, and voices for the voiceless."
