Three Hoffman Estates residents were honored this week with the Barb Basl Community Recognition Award.
Michelle Pilafas, chairwoman of the village's Commission for Disabled Citizens, said the award is given to citizens who "have overcome significant challenges to rise to a level of excellence that's an inspiration to others."
This year's recipients include Doug Hill, an incoming seventh grader at Eisenhower Junior High; Niketa Dave, who was nominated by a good friend and neighbor; and U.S. Rep. Tammy Duckworth.
All three award winners were described by their nominators as hard workers who have a positive attitude in light of their disabilities, Pilafas said.
"We appreciate the inspiration these three outstanding individuals give to people in our community," said Mayor William McLeod.
