Nolan James received the 2021 J.R. Tesone Youth Public Health Service Award, a special student recognition from the Westchester County Health Board of Health. The Board selected Nolan as this year’s awardee because his volunteer efforts in response to the COVID-19 pandemic have contributed to public health in Westchester County. Nolan organized a meal delivery program for Meals on Main Street in Port Chester (formerly Caritas of Port Chester). The deliveries, which came by bicycle and in reusable bags collected by Nolan, were made by a group of Nolan’s RCDS friends, with Nolan serving as the lead coordinator for this public purpose effort. Nolan’s dedication is an inspiring example of the RCDS motto, Not for Self, bur for Service.
