WILLINGBORO â€“ William Weston, vice president of the Willingboro & Vicinity Branch NAACP received the President’s Award from his chapter this month for his leadership.
Willingboro President and township council member-elect Samantha Whitfield present Weston with the award during the organization’s December meeting. Weston organized and co-host the branch’s regular podcast, which updates the public of what is going on inside and out the NAACP local and nationally.
The President’s Award is given to an individual who has contributed significantly to building community by promoting understanding and acceptance of cultural and racial diversity and contributes significantly to engaging the community and empowering leadership.
“It is a great honor receiving this award,” Weston said. “I appreciate the recognition of all of the seen and unseen work that I put in during this year. I’d be remiss if I did not give tremendous thanks to branch President Samantha Whitfield who continually provided leadership and inspiration.
“I would like to thank all of my collaborators in the Willingboro & Vicinity Branch for their support, without which many of our goals would not have been attained. I would also like to thank the Southern Burlington County branch for their various partnerships and solidarity in this fight for civil rights. Together when we Fight we Win,” Weston added.
