Congratulations to Mike Coons ’18, Jack Coons ’18, and Hailey DiCindio ’18, this year’s winners of the Howard W. Starkweather Jr. ’44 Community Service Award. This award is given to the student or students who contribute the most to the greater community of Wilmington, outside of just the Friends School community.

DiCindio and the Coons brothers were perfect candidates for this award. Ildiko Miller, the Service Program Coordinator, commented “The three candidates have gone beyond the required service hours. Not only that but their commitment to service is ongoing and sets an example for those around them. Whether it’s the Ronald McDonald House, AI Children’s hospital or the LLS of DE (and the list could go on) Hailey, Jack and Mike are always to help. They are students who are willing to quietly assume responsibility and work in the trenches expecting nothing more than the sheer pleasure derived from knowing they have helped someone out.”
