Honoring Our Action Heroes

Each year, WCAC hosts an annual Action Hero Awards Celebration to publicly recognize individuals and organizations who have gone above and beyond in supporting the agency’s mission.

After postponements in 2020 and 2021, it was good to be back! WCAC hosted its newly renamed Resiliency Awards on Monday, February 14, 2022! In deference to continuing best practices of social distancing, WCAC hosted a hybrid event with an opportunity for our honorees to gather in-person safely, while allowing the greater community to celebrate with us virtually. We were thrilled to welcome Mark K. Shriver as our keynote speaker and to present our first-ever Sargent Shriver Trailblazer Award! We also presented our new Champion for Kids and Iggy Strong-Providing Youth Opportunities Awards, as well as several Action Hero Awards. You can watch a copy of the celebration which was livestreamed from the JMAC Theatre in downtown Worcester HERE. Additional photos can be viewed HERE.

Special thanks to our presenting sponsor National Grid. Advocate level sponsor Webster Five; Supporters – Cornerstone Bank, Fidelity Bank, Lamoureux Pagano Associates Architects; our hosts JMAC Theatre; and award designer Daisy’s Designs LLC
