Kingston resident Laurie Barkowsky named Unsung Heroine

Congratulations to Kingston resident Laurie Barkowsky, who has been named a Massachusetts Unsung Heroine of the Year for 2011, for her efforts in providing the children of Pilgrim Hope Shelter in Kingston special birthday celebrations.

The award is offered annually by the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women.  Each year the State House welcomes the winners of the state’s 100 winners of Unsung Heroine nominations to an awards celebration and “Just Desserts” reception. Barkowsky, along with other heroines, were awarded pins and certificates and were celebrated for volunteer work that often does not garnish public awareness.
