Sylvia Myers Receives Citation from the Commonwealth of PA
For her decades of service to the community as a librarian at St. Lucy's school and through community groups such as the Roxborough Manayunk Wissahickon Historical Society, Friends of the Library, Women of Greater Philadelphia, Journey's Way, and many, many more, Sylvia Myers was presented with a citation from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's House of Representatives.
This special honor came to be through the work of Rep. Tarik Khan who personally presented her with the citation at the April 5th award ceremony. Her family was on hand to witness the event as were dozens of friends who represented the many organizations she'd served with over the years.
"Whereas, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is always proud to recognize those individuals that, through their relentless hard work and service, have improved and enriched countless lives in our Commonwealth... Sylvia Myers has served our community with passion and grace ... [and] has demonstrated the highest ideals as a member of our community and continually strives to be a guiding light and resource to all around her, and is truly deserving of this recognition.... "
