Michael DeSensi, the board president and program coordinator at the West View HUB, is the first-ever recipient of the North Hills Community Service Award.
Established earlier this year by the NHSD Board of Education, the Community Service Award recognizes a current resident of the district who has made a significant contribution to the community through their time, talents and dedication.
Nominated by their peers, awardees serve as role models for compassion and service, while striving to make the North Hills community a better place.
DeSensi has been volunteering his time at the West View HUB for the last 18 months.
He donates no less than 20 hours a week continuously developing community programs for the HUB and working with community partners to stock the HUB’s pantry, among other initiatives.
DeSensi was recognized and presented with a plaque at Thursday night’s school board meeting.
He was nominated by West View HUB founder Scott Pavlot.
“I’m nominating him because he freely shares the most valuable, and only finite, element in our existence: time,” Pavlot said in his nomination.
DeSensi lives in the district and his daughter attends North Hills Middle School.
Congratulations, Mr. DeSensi. Thank you for your dedication to our community!
