Hidden Heroes and Sheroes Awards


The Hidden Heroes and Sheroes Community Event recognizes individuals in the community who have demonstrated leadership, initiative and commitment to improving the quality of life in our neighborhood.

Specifically, awards are given to individuals for their contributions in Neighborhood Leadership, Civic Leadership, Youth Leadership, and the “Millennium Award” which is an award presented to a community member who helps realize a goal indicated in the Millennium Project.

This annual “coming together” to celebrate the accomplishments of our neighbors is coordinated by the Codman Square Neighborhood Council and the Four Corners Action Coalition.  Rev. Bill Loesch established this event fifteen years ago.

The tradition of honoring our Hidden Heroes proves an excellent way to both recognize our leaders and provide $1,500.00 college scholarships for two high school seniors who have shown exceptional dedication to their community.

The 2019 awardees are:

Cathy Baker-Eclipse- Millennium Award

Burgess Realty – Civic Leadership Award

Peter Robinson – Civic Leadership Award

Cynthia Beckford-Brewington- Neighborhood Leadership Award

Ann Thorne – Neighborhood Leadership Award

Shakeriah Baxter – Youth Award

Saffiyah Coker- Youth Award

Below is a list of ways you can support our efforts.   If you have any questions, please call 617-297-8472 or e-mail csncouncil@gmail.com.

Tickets are $30.00 each.  90% of ticket sales go toward two $1,500 educational scholarships for the two youth awardees. These scholarships are now known as the Rev. Dr. Bill Loesch Scholarships. Join us and learn more about this newly established scholarship fund in memory of the late Rev. Dr. Bill Loesch, a founder of the Hidden Heroes and Sheroes celebration and strong advocate of the power of education. These annual scholarships will help to honor Rev. Dr. Bill Loesch and carry his legacy forward to future generations.
