In March, Yonkers leader and board member Walter Lipscomb received the Unsung Hero. The luncheon was hosted by a new group called Steppin' Up. The group is made up of community members from the faith-based, business and community groups that want to improve Yonkers. The award is to recognize everyday community members for their contributions to their neighborhood and community. The event was so big that it got the attention of City Council Majority Leader Pat McDow who sent over a proclamation.
Walter was recognized as a community leader that people know and respect. In his speech, Walter stated that he would not be able to do the work he does without CVH. Other Yonkers members looked on with pride along with Walter's mom.
