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.
