BERNIE POPSON - ROBERT K. MERICLE LEADERSHIP AWARD
Sponsored by Mericle Commercial Real Estate
Bernie has been a long-time supporter of YMCA Children’s programming – most recently our new child care facility located in Forty Fort. The Charlotte L. Casterline M.D. Early Learning Center is now open to serve children from the Forty Fort and Kingston communities: feeding them, teaching them and ultimately providing them with a safe place to learn and grow.
DR. DURELLE & CONSTANCE SCOTT - GEORGE BRANDT COMMUNITY SERVICE AWARD
Sponsored by Colours Inc.
Durelle and Connie are champions of the YMCA Annual Support Campaign, inspiring support for the scholarship fund that provides Y services for families experiencing financial challenges. Our YMCA turns no one away for inability to pay and without the generosity of the Scotts and others like them, these scholarships wouldn’t be available for those who need them the most.
KEVIN O'BOYLE - FRANK M. HENRY LAYPERSON OF THE YEAR AWARD
A Pittston native, our YMCA community is close to Kevin’s heart. The Y’s newest child care site, Mericle Family Center for Early Childhood Education, will be equipped to serve approximately 160 children and youth in a state-of-the-art facility in Pittston Township – coming soon!
